truck shifting wierd

Hey, im new the forum, mostly on the dodgeforum for my hemi ram 1500, but we now have a 2002 f350 crewcab long bed 7.3 4x4 lariat. The truck is awesome however when under medium to hard throttle, the truck shifts but kind of stutters. Like it shifts then sounds like the engine drops in rpm real quick. it does it every time shifting especially towing a trailer. The owner before had biult the tranny with a bigger cooler, bigger torque converter, bigger oil pan. Any ideas. If u need more info on the truck or what im trying to describe let me know.

Sounds like a normal condition. Early shifts with torque converter clutch engagement and sub-optimal gear ratio spread.

Drive it.
