Tranny issues

Hello, my auto trans in my 04 tj (6.0l) has been on a slow decline for the last month..i would have to turn my OD off so that the trans would shift halfway decent..i got code p1698...i read up on it but 2 days ago my transmission shifted into 2nd gear so hard that it "barked" my 31x10.5 tires!!...i believe per the code that i possibly have a bad tcm...checked all the electronic connections...good...grounds...good...hmm...took it to AAMCO and was advised "we cannot diagnose the problem until we take the transmission apart and do a rebuild ($1400) and we pulled 2 codes from your vehicle (p1698 and p0700) and we aren't able to diagnose to see it is indeed electrical."...i havd the codes pulled at autozone right before i took my jeep into AAMCO and there was no P0700....i basically told the guy you don't have to take the trans apart to diagnose an obvious (to me) electrical problem..I have drag raced for years and know if i have an internal transmission problem...all of my issues were intermittent...so to the experts and fine gentlement of this forum....any help/info/advice would be greatly appreciated!!
