JUMPS OUT OF 5TH GEAR

1992 Ford Ranger

Transmission problem
1992 Ford Ranger 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Manual 119000 miles

I was having problems with my transmission jumping out of 5th Gear, I pulled the transmission and had it rebuilt, while it was out I replaced the Pilot Bearing, Clutch, U-Joints, & Carrier Bearing.
I installed the rebuilt transmission, Initial test drive around the block was perfect. First trip on the High way, it done it again. The Gears all seem tight. What would cause it to jump out of gear only in 5th Gear.
I know the Input Shaft, Gears, Syncros, Slide Rail & Top Plate was all replaced, as I was given the old parts. Could worn Motor mounts be causing this?

I would suspect the shifter

Ended up pulling the Tranny again, the New gear for 5th had a some major pitting on a couple of the teeth. Replaced them, every thing fine since
