Default 2013 ram transmission

i have a 2013 ram 1500 with a rough country edition. 35 x 12.5 x 20's, 6 inch suspension lift, 4.7L, 6 speed trans.. The truck feels like it is shifting too fast. Can this be corrected?

Speedo and tire pressure sensor were re-calibrated and I even checked it again to be sure. I heard the computer can be flashed, is there any truth to that? The truck feels sluggish due to shifting and at times the shifting holds out and the truck runs great?

need to get a tuner and adjust the transmissions shift points to how you like them most tuners for the 4.7L have this option not sure about the 6 speed but most likely if it works off of pressure the resistance from the tires most likely what is causing her to shift early. That being said tranny might run hotter cause once adjusted might look into a cooler for it to be on the safe side.
