I was driving home this morning and my truck would shift into 5th gear. 1st-4th shift fine, then I noticed when i put it in reverse it pops back out unless I hold it in gear. Can someone please help me out on this one?

Sounds like it's time for a rebuild.

Your truck has a ZF 5speed and they were known for this. If you don't want to rebuild it you take a chance with a used one which will have the same flaw and could be junk out of the box. At least with a reman you know what you have.
