This happened in my 1992 Toyota 6Cyl pickup. The gear box has
encountered a rock, and had lifted upwards by about two inches by the
steel bar that was put in place to protect it. I removed the bar, and
the gear box say back in its correct place. I assume this is common
only among people who live or work on a dirt road.

I also assume the gear select sleve inside your gear box has worn out
at the high end. Bummer, but that's a horror if you don't have the
time to fix it yourself.
