Default Truck sounds good, idles good, but on highway

When I am driving it seems to shift strange, and when on the highway the truck backfires like crazy. Got a feeling I put too much money into a work truck. Bought it for $2300, $2,000 to get inspected, and now all this crap. Its fine except on the highway, and at low speeds. Low speeds it just shifts strange, and jerks. I think the tranny fluid might be low even knowing I had a mechanic add some.

Which pump is it? I researched front pump, but can't find a replacement pump called front pump.
