I have a 07 Automatic 4WD FJ. After 2nd gear, the RPM goes up more than usual before it shifts into 3rd w a bucking sensation that can be felt in the entire truck. If I apply gas very slowly it happens less. To eliminate the rear end axle, 3rd member, pinion, etc I took off the rear driveshaft and drove the truck around in front wheel drive and it still happened. I suspect the transmission. I've read about the SLT solenoid going bad and causing pressure to build up before a shift occurs. Does anyone else have this problem and what was the solution?

Thanks in advance
