i traded trucks with a friend of mine for a week and ever since i got mine back it grinds going into 4th gear, its not as bad if you shift slow but it always does it unless you coast long enough for it to be at idle and slowed way down and even then it still grinds half the time.

any ideas on how to fix it? syncro could be bad? i dont know anything about the getrag or any tranny really
