This isn't really an engineerig problem, because in theory your primary shaft will be stationary when you engage rev, making a beveled edge a moot point (because you aren't moving). In reality, though, the primary shaft will spin, so going into a beveled gear first will stop it, then allow a seamless rev shift while everything actually is stationary.
Thanks for explaining it! That actually does make sense. I can tell you know your jeeps! I'm actually a mechanic but only 18 so I'm still learning. I just figured they would come up with something so it doesnt grind....but first then reverse!

This. It's normal. That's how I've been shifting into reverse with my 89 AX15 for years. I go from first to reverse. What you can do to help is to change your fluid to full syn gear oil 75W90 or full syn 10W30 motor oil.

Palma11b So its normal William? Nothing wrong or something to get dirty fixing?

Palma11b Thanks for that link dukes!!! That helped a lot man

Palma11b It grinds to where I'm scared to put it in farther....that's what she said! Haa. Well it only does it the first time. Usually after it grinds when I go back again it doesn't. Also when I go to first gear first then reverse it doesn't.

petercass88 does it grind significantly to the point that you cant go in gear? A little bit wont hurt.. mine grinds a bit, i just make sure to throw it in reverse fast and i have no issues. My 98 volvo 5 speed had the same thing and it was still going strong until the day i did a title swap on it a few months back.
