If you get the chip from one of the recommended tuners, ie PHP, TW. Etc; your shifting will actually be better than stock. If you get a basic TS chip from a typical vendor that only has canned tunes, some shifting may be a little harsh but it's still not too bad.
The stock tranny will eventually break down because of the inferior parts for uses in them. If you race around in a 120-140hp tune all the time; it will shorten the life of the tranny.
I ran my truck with DP tuner for 4 yrs and recently installed TS with PHP tunes. My tranny/truck is just shy of 190k. No signs of problems; however I just had Brian install his BTS tranny last Friday.
He said the forward drum was about shot, od clutches shot and center support parts were very wore out with a lot of play. He said a heavy enough load could have finished the tranny off; it was just a matter of time.
I would look into a bts tranny at some point. They are pricey but well worth the cost
