4R100 hesitates/chatters into drive after backing trailer

Hi everyone . I'm new to the Nation and this is my first post, so here it goes.
I have a 2002 F250 cc that I have owned since new, it has a few mild mods (Dp Tuner w/80mtn. 80econo. 40tow. 60tow. Decel., GTP38Rr turbo,AFE stage 2 intake, MBRP 4" exhaust, built 4r100. tranny w/ billet input Tugger kit and P.I. torque converter,Gauges

My issue is with the tranny I believe. Every time I pull a trailer and then back the trailer up (like into a driveway for example) then shift into drive it hesitates to go into drive (with trailer hitched or unhitched) and then kind of chatters into gear and starts to move. It only does this after towing no matter if it's a 1000lb trailer or a 13,000lb trailer, never after driving empty. Tranny fluid level good, fluid and filter changed 8,000 miles ago (schafers), trans temp good on both factory and auto meter gauges. Trans. has about 60,000 miles on it since being built.

Any help or ideas on this issue would be greatly appreciated and thanks in advance.
