It sounds like your solenoid/governors have some debris in them and need to be replaced. That can cause the condition you are describing. You can also make sure your kickdown cable is adjusted properly and not too loose.

adjsut the tv cable, right next to the throttle cable, it most liklely is out of adjustment, dave may have a pic

1.Turn ignition switch to OFF position.
2.Remove air cleaner if necessary.
3.Disconnect cable end (3)(Throttle Valve Cable at Throttle Linkage) from attachment stud on throttle lever (1). Carefully slide cable off stud. Do not pry or pull cable off.
4.Verify that transmission throttle lever is in fully closed position. Then be sure lever on throttle body is at curb idle position.
5.Pry the T.V. cable lock (A) into the UP position. This will unlock the cable and allow for readjustment.
6.Apply just enough tension on the T.V. cable (B) to remove any slack in the cable. Pulling too tight will cause the T.V. lever on the transmission to move out of its idle position, which will result in an incorrect T.V. cable
7.Adjustment. Slide the sheath of the T.V. cable (D) back and forth until the centerlines of the T.V. cable end (B) and the throttle bell crank lever (C) are aligned within one millimeter (1mm).
8.While holding the T.V. cable in the set position push the T.V. cable lock (A) into the down position. This will lock the present T.V. cable adjustment.
NOTE: Be sure that as the cable is pulled forward and centered on the throttle lever stud, the cable housing moves smoothly with the cable. Due to the angle at which the cable housing enters the spring housing, the cable housing may bind slightly and create an incorrect adjustment.

9.Reconnect the T.V. cable (B) to the throttle bellcrank lever (C).
10.Check cable adjustment. Verify transmission throttle lever and lever on throttle body move simultaneously.

I decided to let the Viper tech 1 hr away adjust mine this fall when I get the engine back together. After racing at PCB, I feel it's time, though I'm having no shifting issues to date.

I feel quite comfortable doing the band adjustments myself, but want to get the tranny flushed at the same time, not just drained and refilled. I can't flush at home, and wouldn't trust some Joe down the street with my truck.

No offense to anyone in here named "Joe"..

Sorry, didn't know I was being paged. I'm heading out the door right now but will see if I can dig up a picture when I get back.

I'm back. Here's what I found.

I tried the band adjust today. Did only the Front one,just like the instuctions. Got out tried the thing but I got no reveres so had to loosen the thing again.
My question is does the Rear band have to also be done for it to work.
Only reason i tried this was cause the throttel cable conenction seems to have wore off truck is shifting had again. Any ideas.
I'll probably take it to the shop next week. Anyone think the adjustment will be covered under the warrenty?

The throttle cable will have play in it. It's fine. If u adjusted the band right, you should not have lost reverse. You are using a torque wrench, correct? It's a very simple procedure. No way, would I trust a dealership tech with this. Half of them dont even know that the bands are adjustable and the other half will probably do the outside band and not the inside band. But they'll charge u for both. Take your time and learn how to do it. Loosen lock nut, tighten adjustment screw to specified inch pounds, back adjustment screw specified amount (i marked mine with a sharpie, so i would know if it move when I tightend the lock nut) and finally tighten lock nut down specified foot pounds. It's reall that easy.
