Exclamation Trans shift....HELP!

I have a 2006 Dodge Ram 3500 Mega Cab 5.9L. i recently have been having problems with the transmission... i can go be going down the road just fine but if i attempt to make a left turn it is almost like it gets thrown in to nuetral the engine revs up the after i straighten out it pops into gear i take off. Works just fine making a right hand turn though. Then tongiht i was pulling a guy out the dirt and it was going then all of sudden had no power at all to pull. I was in drive, no movement, 1,2, and Reverse and it was like it was not in gear...checked the linkage and it is good, managed to SOMEHOW make it move by putting it in 4 low and then something popped and it took off on me, limped it home and now it wont come out of 4 low. Tried to stop in N to allow shift out of 4L but no dice, and now it will even take off when i put it in neutral....whats going on!!!

yes i thought about those, and they all checked out…turns out the transmission was going out, actually welded clutches together at points…appreciate the heads up on the matter….

now got a diff question…had the tran rebuilt, they put a HD TC in there, but i have noticed that i don't have the power i used to (i used to be barrel the tires power braking it) could this be due to smaller TC or just a factory rebuild. I am not user what was done to the transmission before… and it seems to kinda stall itself coming outta third gear then kicks into 4th and takes off…shift points?

Yeah, not sure they did ya right. I trust you have receipts that indicate
exactly what was done and parts used such as specific type torque converter?
Slow shift from 3rd to 4th? Do you feel like it may be slipping or does it come
into fourth with some energy? Certainly run your concerns by them soon as if
any warranty was involved it's probably not long.
