Default 99 in 96 manual trans? hmmmm

I am by no means a dodge expert so I need your help. I have a 1996 Clubcab 2 wheel drive with a 5.2 (I think ) V8 (not the sport) with a manual transmission.
The 5-speed keep popping out of gear in 5th gear so i made a bracket to hold it into gear.
Can I buy a 99 manual transmission and swap it into this truck?

Maybe it'll be easier to rebuild the trans.
