2-3 shift issue

My truck doesn't seem to like the 2-3 shift. More often than not, it seems to want to hold 2nd gear until it finally shifts 3rd. No tuning or anything on my truck and it only has 6000 miles. Any thoughts? Should I take it to the dealer? I'm worried they'll try to screw me over because of the lift even though it did it beforehand.

Don't worry about your lift. There is a Flash that takes care of your shifting issue, I had the same issue as what your describing and the update took care of it, smooth as butter now.

I had the same problem and the flash did not fix my issue. After bringing it in time and time again they finally changed a solenoid in the transmission. I just got the truck back a few days ago, but so far so good. I hope that was the problem because it was getting old and it was doing it since 4-5k miles on the truck, I now have 33k on it.

Mine is bone stock as well and doing this between 3-4. It is also sometimes pausing a few seconds going into reverse. Mine is a 2015 with 6k miles on it. it didn't start doing it until I got back from hauling an 11k lb load to and from Montana. I'm dropping it off Tuesday but I have a big feeling they are going to tell me it's normal and they can't feel anything wrong. if that's the case, I'll drive the crap out of it till it breaks. also have a very annoying rattle in the rear driver side door, A/C recirculation door isn't working, and have some kind of popping noise in the suspension/frame area when the chassis flexes a little going from a flat road to an incline. All not a good start for my brand new $65k truck.

I had it in mine as well. did the reflash, fixed it for a while then came back. finally replaced a few of the solenoids and fixed it. I will say that I still have the delay coming out of 2 into 3 when the tranny is cold. after it heats up it's smooth.

Mine is 2-3 and 4-5 and a reverse hesitation. It was fixed at the dealer, 3 new solenoids, parts & labor=$428.04.
Plus they did a passenger wheel hub.
Unfortunately 221,000 miles is too much for anyone but me to pay for it.
So for those of you with low miles, get them in and fixed with their money not yours.

There's a tsb out for certain months n years for the solenoids. I changed mine myself, cost like $100 plus fluid. Runs better. Tho every now n then same 2-3 hesitation if I'm easy on the pedal. Think u just have to drive these trucks hard like they're meant to be

once in a blue moon I still get the reverse hesitation. usually right at start up if the trucks been sitting a long time, overnight or all day at work, has only happend about 3 times. once since the new solenoids, put it in R, nothing happens for a while, shift back to P, and then to R again and works. not even worth taking in since I know it will never happen while at the dealer. had them add the notes two different times i had it before they replced the solenoids so hopefully if something goes out in the future it will be somewhat coverable... doubt it though.
