My cars Lund’s like there are rocks in the gearbox while trying to go into reverse. It runs fine in high though. I am hoping it’s the shift fork.

Has anyone removed their gearbox that would like to give me some pointers?

Its more then likely the shift dogs and not the forks, doesnt take much wear to have em start grinding. They can technically be changed in frame. If you dont mind cutting a small notch in the pan section of the frame right below the gear box you dont even have to unbolt the gear box. If you chose not to cut then motor and gearbox have to move up and ahead about 2inches. Lots of things need to come off to do this, headers, driveshaft, shift linkage, intake... if you go this route get yourself a service manual online, they go for about 20$.
Heres some pics of how to access and how little wear will cause grinding when engaging.

Id still guess something with the shift dogs. Those 3 raised areas on it are what engages to the gear and are the main link between the input shaft and the gear.
