Im posting this for a friend who really doesn't have time or access to computers.

He has a new to him 2007 JK manual and can't get it to go into 5th gear or it just comes right back out of 5th gear. All of the other gears are fine with no issues. Not sure what lift is on the Jeep but it has 35" tires on it. Is there something simple to look for or is this something that would need a transmission shop to fix? Any ideas welcome.

The first two things to rule out are the outer and inner shift boots. If either of them aren't correctly attached/crimped,etc., there can be a situation as you described. With early model year JK's, initial problems with jumping out of gear were linked to the inner shift boot. If that checks out then you have to move into the trans.
