2008 wrangler, will not take 4th gear

Recently bought my fist jeep, it is a 2008 V6 6 speed, days after buying it began having problems with 4th gear, grinding when tying to put in, dealer suggested it may be boot on top of tranny, changed that this morning, no change, will slide into 4th when jeep is shut off, thinking synchronizer ???? Anybody else out there have this problem, could really use your help, thanks

Welcome to the Forum!

If you have just had it for days and you bought it from any type of dealer it should have minimal warranty. From the information you have provided, I think you are on the right track thinking about the synchro gears. It could also be the collar the gear selector slides into if its still a little challenging even when the gears are not turning. Run a quick search on problems with the manual transmission and you may find some help.
