Not shifting from 3-4 in OD

Hey guys I am a noob, with a question about my tranny. I have a 2002 F350 with 7.3, it has a banks 6 gun tuner, aftermarket exhaust, and a cold air intake. Recently I was hauling a 4,000 lb load of gravel and had the tuner all the way down and the OD off. Once I hit 3rd gear it would not shift into 4th. I was running 3,000 rpms at 55MPH. No CEL and No OD light blinking. I tried doing it with a empty load, tuner turned up etc and same issue. tranny is fine with OD on. Only doing it when OD is off. Any ideas? Thanks in advance!

Overdrive is 4th gear. With OD locked out, 3rd is as high as the tranny will go.

Really? So is it possible when I don't have a heavy enough load, and the od is off that its normal for it to be running that high of rpms? I towed my 30 foot trailer which weighs about 7000 lbs fully loaded with od off a few months ago and didn't have this issue.

I don't know enough about trannies to say. 55 mph at 3000 rpms seems too slow to me. your TC may be slipping, not locking up. I had an '02 that I bought new and I replaced the trans 2 times. 1st one was at 13k under warranty and the second one was my fault, never select "2" with the gear shifter, it locks the tranny in 2nd, ooooops! I never was happy towing heavy with the auto which is why my last 2 trucks have been manuals. There are obviously many auto trucks out there working hard and doing a great job. Several have no issues and several do. I don't know what makes some work great and some fail. CODUM, I think is his handle, on this forum has or had over 400k on his truck and I think only 1 trans rebuild which if I remember correctly was at least after a 200k.

Wish I could help more, hopefully someone with better knowledge will chime in.

Ya I thought 3000 RPM's was too high too. Im almost wondering if the truck was re-geard before I bought it. Like I said when OD is engaged tranny is perfectly fine. So that leads me to believe it isn't an issue with the tranny. Ill have to do some more digging.

What speed are you running at 2000 rpm in OD? I have 3.73 gears and it is running 70 mph at 2000 rpm in OD.
