Typical trans question

Getting ready to sell my 99 f250 7.3 to a friend and wanted to ask a few questions before.

Truck has 270K. When you first go for a ride in the morning the trans shifts pretty darn hard. As it warms up, it shifts a lot smoother. I recently put it up for sale and have driven it pretty hard lately to make sure there are no issues. The truck always shifts good. Just hard when it is cold. Never slips, never lags, just hard early on. Shifts good and solid into OD and you can feel it when the lockup hits.

I assume with this amount of miles the trans has been rebuilt before and most likely has a shift kit.

I did have a bully dog DP programmer but removed that awhile back.

Trans fluid is still nice and red and doesnt smell burnt.

I just want to make sure I dont sell a friend a bunch of problems.

I truly believe the truck is solid and there are no issues. Just wanted to ask.

Mine does it. Just cause of the cold fluid.
WHy do you assume it's been rebuilt? Mine hasn't. If it had a shift kit it should shift quicker and not so smooth when warm. Granted, not hard, but firm.

Just figured with those kinda miles it would be rebuilt. It still shifts firm when warm, but not HARD like it does when cold.
