Is this a 5 speed transmission? Do you have a body lift?

Perhaps weight transfer forward (you're facing downhill and backing up the hill) pushes the shift lever out of gear?

How many miles are on it. If it's an automatic transmission have you had the transmission service done? (oil, filter, and flush) checked level of transmission fluid?

if it's manual, its most likely not due to the fluid being a little low. I don't have enough experience with the transmissions in the 2005, I think they changed them that year. I know they introduced the automatic and the push button 4wd in 05'. Usually when a manual tranny starts popping out of gear its time for a major overhaul.
