im guessing a syncro gear has packed it and wont let it engage 3rd. worn bearings in the gearbox will more than likely cause it to be loud. sierra tranny's dont fit, completely different motor.
im not sure if the sj410 gearbox will fit (it has a F10A engine, the lj80 has a F8A), one of the other guys will probably chime in with a suggestion :wink:

welcome to the site!!! some pics of your rig would be nice aswel :D
If you can't fix it with a hammer. You got an electrical problem!

One of mine just did this. It was alwys a little rattly and then one day third started making more noise. Swapped the trans out and found one of the third gears had chucked a couple of teeth. SJ 410 box should bolt up but you will need to swap the shifter mounts. Gear ratios are slightly different.
