worn synchros, worn engine or trans mounts, bad body mounts, worn shifter.

could it have to do with a lift? or the angle of the driveshaft?

anytime you change the angle of the driveline or the height of the body to the frame as in body lift you need to check that the shifter has room to move.

One of the worst habits is to drive with a hand on the shifter for the same reason. shifter will move around and shake, let it be.

Should have mentioned NO lift bone stock so far. Althogh the other day my skid plate had a bolt rust out and i had to jack it back in place (seems to also act as a cross member) it i now back in place.
