Default 2001 Dodge ram grinding noise

Hey everyone. I have a 2001 dodge ram 1500 5.9 automatic. When im driving regularly (not stomping it to the floor) my truck starts to grind around 45 mph like it doesnt want to shift gears.If i let off the gas and get back on it then it stops. I have had somebody say it was my torque converter but i am not positve. (i dont want to drop money in to fix my torque converter and that not be the problem). Any help would be great so i can get all this fixed. Thanks!!

p.s. If somebody knows what this is a price to fix would be great if you could include it thanks again!!

Will the grinding stop if you let off the gas and get back on it?

could it just be my second gear going out?

Try some "Lucas" Transmission slip stop and see what it does.
