Towing...

anyone else get aggrivated with the stock transmission programming? just seems like the converter always locks up to quick in 2nd gear, the tranny shifts into 2nd and then half a second later the converter locks, same thing pretty much happens in 3rd to. its not a big deal when the truck is unloaded or when there is a sled trailor behind it, but when i start to tow a good size load 5000+ its really frustrating because it kills the trucks acceleration when it does this and makes it work its nuts off to get going again. it just seems lke the truck would tow so much easier if the converter stayed unlockd longer at the beginning of 2nd and 3rd gear.
