Clutch maybe?

Just recently my 02 4.0 4x4 manual has been rough starting and down shifting to 1st gear don't feel it in any other gear. Had a little grind going to first this afternoon. Could it be an ajustment or is my clutch going out? Thanks

There is no adjustment to these hydraulic clutch systems.

Have you checked your fluid level in the clutch master cylinder reservoir?

I've never know anyone to actually downshift to 1st gear on a regular basis. I certainly never have. At least not to where they actually release the clutch to slow the vehicle, how downshifting is usually used.

The rough starting, depending on what it's doing, is probably another issue altogether.

No codes or check engine lights?

No lights, not down shifting but putting into gear after stopping at a light or sign

I meant putting into first not actually starting the engine it seems to want to grind a little putting in and out of first but not any other gear

If it shifts OK but it only grinds when putting it into first while at the light, maybe your needle bearing are shot at the end of the crank shaft.
The input shaft maybe binding on the failed/dry needle bearings.
