1st gear problem
I have a '93 YJ manual and whenever i try to put it into 1st gear it feels as if it will not engage. and often it wont engage it takes a few tries of: neutral, release clutch, depress clutch and attempt to put it in first gear again. Is this a synchronizer issue??

Try shifting Reverse than 1st. I bet it goes in easy every time.:thumb:

Could be low on fluid also. I had this problem and the the slave cylinder went out.
