Hard to shift to reverse

All of a sudden, it's really difficult to shift my wife's 1991 Wrangler to reverse. It's like hitting a stop or something solid when shifting to reverse. Any ideas what might be causing this 'new' problem?

Thanks!

I took a closer look at the Jeep and discovered my 'shifting problem'. The 3 bolts that hold the bracket for the motor mount to the engine block, sheared-off. I contacted Brown Dog and they are sending me a bracket that they make for this situation. The new bracket uses 8 bolts for pre-drilled holes already in the engine block and no need to remove the broken bolts. According to Brown Dog... "It solves the problem forever. We're fixin' to find-out!
