Rough Idle - In Reverse Only

Hey guys,
I have an 02 SD with the 7.3L motor and for the last 2 weeks when I set the gear in reverse (auto tranny), the motor idles down or dies. This only happens in reverse.

I have had an aftermarket air filter, banks transcommand and banks exhaust for 6 years. Last year I added an edge evolution programmer. Even when I set the programmer to stock, it does the same thing.

The check engine light does has not came on.
There are no leaks of any kind. I also checked for lose connections of any kind (electrical, vaccum).

Has anyone experienced this before?

Thanks for the reply Cratos.

Do you know what other symptoms will follow?
In the mean time, I will start looking for a converter. I just want to know what other symptoms I will see before going out altogether.

mine does it when the motor is cold, and only if I rev it up a litte, it never dies though.
