Default Tranny Shifting Problem

Hi Guys

Wondering if you could help me with the problem I have been having. Hopefully I can explain.

So the main problem is my truck is not holding 2nd gear. when climbing a hill at low speed it will hold till about 2000rpm then want to drop back to 1st.
when back in first it will rev out and not change up until I take my foot off the gas. then it will change down. this keeps happening till I can get it about about 70/80km/h then its will slip into 3rd.

I live in Alberta, Canada in cold temperatures but this happens when the truck is cold and warm. It is a problem when I'm driving lots of steep windy roads.

the truck has done just over 150,000Kms

It is also slow to change gears and one cold morning it took a long time on the highway to change into overdrive but I have not had that problem since. As far as I know it has a new transfer case too. I dont have huge tires or lift kit.

Any help would be awesome. thanks in advance!
