Its only needed if you use the 275 and 310 tunes a lot. And even then, its only really necessary if you have a Job 1 TCM.

No, it is not necessary.

So if you don't have a job 1 truck, but you run the 310 tune all the time the TCM won't change anything with the hard shifting and the "rev thud" thing it does?

I cannot garuntee anything like that. The rev and slam deal seems to be a common 5R110W problem. Some people get positive results with adding a little tranny fluid (half a quart at most).
