Transmission pops out of 5th gear over 55MPH

I'm trying to find out what is wrong with my transmission. I have a 2000 Wrangler Sahara- a NV3550 (5 speed manual).

It usually pops out of gear as I'm cruising down the highway. Sometimes I can go a few miles then it pops out, sometimes 15 minutes. If I get to about 55 MPH in 4th and then shift into 5th and maintain 55 MPH it will cruise and cruise ( went 1.5hrs this way two days ago).

I have noticed when I am in Neutral, I hear a grinding sound, I think its related but not sure.

Do I need to replace the clutch? the 5th gear?
