Hard Shift

My newly acquired 2000 F350 DRW has the 4r100 trany
with 176,000 miles.

When going into 4th it shifts hard and abruptly. If I anticipate
the shift and let off the throttle a bit it smooths it out a bit

1st to 2nd is smooth, 2nd to 3rd smooth but a bit more abrupt.

Any thing to be concerned about??

Fluid is not discolored at all. Truck bone stock and never chipped.

I'm running about 61 to 62 mph at 2000 rpms or so... is this a 4.10
rear end? No tag on it that I can see.

Thanks

Does it happen when you first drive when the fluid is cold or when you have been driving it for awhile?

Sundance, are you running it stock? Or do you have a tune on it? My ts chip all but eliminated the hard shift.

Mine did the same exact thing. Got my Tony Wildman chip and haven't had it since. (If you ever do end up chipping it, don't buy an Edge, you'll have a hard jerk in every gear haha)
