    Lately I have been delveloping a hard shift, after I have been driving the truck for a while, within normal operating temp, If I try to go into reverse it feels like it shifts really hard, loud noise, and a huge clunk! Only in Reverse though, and when the truck is cold it shifts just fine, any thoughts?
