Tranny Trouble

I spent all day getting ready for a pull this weekend. After I got done I started truck and went to get the weights; truck died in gear, put it in nuetral and it started right up. I thought my TC switch was on but it wasn't neither was the indicator light. After it started it wouldn't move, put it in first and it took off fine. Got the weights hung on and it stopped like it was out of gear, pulled it into low again and it was fine. I feel like this may be a valve body issue, I need some help ASAP.

Maybe it has turned into a chicken $hit.

Here are some pictures anyway of it almost ready to pull.

alot of times when the torque converter is going bad internally it will lock up at unusual times and shut the engine off , most of the time when it does it , is at idle either in nuetral or right as you shift into drive or reverse , and it will shut it down like you flipped off the switch
