Is my trans starting to go?

When i take off from a stop and give it more then about half throttle it feels like it is slipping. It is pretty jerky. Then when i get going past about 5-10 mph it is fine. All other times it works fine. The temp has gotten almost up to the yellow a few times when pulling my trailer. I have always pulled over when it started getting hot though and let it cool. I only have the stock gauge for temp though so I'm not sure how accurate that is. I have changed the fluid and filter at regular intervals since I have had it. Never done the flush, just what drains out of the pan. Upgrades are in the sig. It has about 175000 miles on it. It hasnt been corrected for the tires though so it is a little more then that. 315/75/16. Im not real knowledgeable with Trans just understand the basics of how they work. Should I start planning on a rebuild soon?

the way you are servicing your trans is the way most shops recommend.
so your good there.

does it jerk when you take off? kind of sounds like you need to lube the slip joint on the rear driveline.

If i take off and ease into the throttle it is fine. But if i get on the throttle a little bit from a stop it feels sluggish and jerky. I notice it most when i have the trailer and am stopped on an incline and get going.

Is this the slip joint you are talking about?
