Default Rough gear selection *Help me!

When I try to change to drive or reverse my truck lunges. How do I fix/prevent this from happening? And how expensive is the fix?

Thanks in advance for any help.

When the last time you changed your transmission fluid?

Mine does that, it's not a huge lunge but you can feel it. I always thought it was just the truck doing it's thing. My buddies Chev has a shift kit in it and it does the same but a lot harder then mine. Check the fluid level in the tranny and see what it is at.
