tranny upgrades

I am wanting to know if there are any ways to up grade my automatic transmission. When i am coasting or have my foot off the gas and then start to accelerate i feel a slip in the tranny. i have custom exhaust an edge kit but only run 31 x 12.50 ssr's with a three inch lift. my axles are 3.07's (stock) and i have only 19,000 miles on my jeep. can any body explain what this is, how to fix it, and upgrades to make my tranny last longer. I know a tranny cooler is a good idea and i am planning that but want to do more if possible.

A tranny cooler is a very good idea. My tranny became too hot without such a cooler on very hot days.

How does your ATF look? When died you change it and the filter the last time?

You should be fine with only 19k on it and 31's.
