Transmission woes

I have never really been happy with the manual transmission in my truck since I bought it. It has always been hard to shift. It grinds a lot and has always been very hard to downshift. Now it keeps popping out of first gear. I guess it's time for a rebuild. What has been the experience with others on this forum witht the 6 speed manual? Is there a better transmission that could be switched out with? I wouldn't mind putting in a medium duty version with more gears if possible.
