Shift Kit

How you doing guys? I had my tranny rebuilt i would say 30,000 miles ago, i dont do anything crazy with the truck just my daily driver. I have been noticing the shifts seem in a way kind of sloppy.Would a shift kit help this out? i dont want anything crazy. Also i noticed when i get on the highway, when im cruising my truck doesnt feel smooth through the powerband, its tuff to say, like i feel like i couldnt drive it far like on a road trip or something

Provided there's nothing going wrong with the trans, a shift kit would definitely help out. I'd do the Trans-Go Tugger. A custom valve body would help too as would most (not all) chips. The custom tune is considered the best by most.
