TC unlocked? Does it do it all the time or cold or hot? Also, changed anything lately? Tires?
What gears do you have and tire size? How's the trans fluid?

the TC is locked and it does it weather its hot or cold, nothing has changed my tires are 35s and i have 373 gears, the trans fluid was changed about 9,000 miles ago and does smell a little burnt, the truck feels like it has an extra load on it on the high way, normal driving it runs fine

4wd? something in the driveline might be causing extra drag.

If the tc is locked, then rpm shouldn't change, just boost levels. I would think tc

My Samsung SGH-I997 made me send this.

I'm saying the shouldn't have changed, unless the TC is slipping. But I'm not trans guy, just throwing out ideas.
