07 Wrangler popping out of gear??

I have a 2007 wrangler 6 speed manual that keeps violently popping out of first gear. The higher the rpm's the more violent the pop is. It only happens in first gear though. Anyone else out there having this issue?? Any recommendations of what it is or how it can be fixed?

Very common my friend. Google Jk popping out of gear. Threads and threads on this subject. I have been lucky and have not had it happen.
Are you firmly shifting, making sure its in gear?
If you have a warranty, take it in and have the dealer look at it.

I have the '07 JK with a manual 6 as well and this has happened to me several times. I think its just a case of not shifting hard enough to fully engage the gear. I started shifting a little harder and never had another problem.
