Default Odd shifting, Changed fluid/filter

My truck has 204k on it with the fact engine and trans still, when i got it reverse took a bit to engage and would jerk when it did, 3rd gear would slip slightly but stop once driven and the trans temp goes up. Since then i've done a fluid and filter change, and added Lucas ATF Conditioner, also ran Seafoam Trans Tune through it prior to the service. I've put a couple hundred miles on it since the service and it was shifting perfect, and now its slowly kinda going back to the same problems, just not quite as bad as it had been.

I'm ASE in collision mechanics and have plenty of other certs, been doing this my whole life but always avoided trans work, so basically i'm looking for opinions about possible causes, I am willing to tear this thing out and tear it down to replace the worn parts, but would like to know what the possible causes are before i get to that step, thanks in advance!

the fluid is still red, doesn't smell burnt at all, before i changed it the fluid was a little brown and had a slight burnt smell but not near as bad as some that i've seen that operated perfectly fine
