Unhappy 2004 Ranger stalls at a stop, weird

Ok I just looked at the similar threads and did not find one that addressed my issue 100%

So I recently acquired a rust free low mileage 2004 4.0 4x4.
When coming to a stop in D the truck will die, but only if you have gone over 35 mph otherwise it drives fine. When coming to a stop I have to manually downshift it to 2 then 1 then take off from one back up to 2 then D and it drives fine. If I put the truck in N when coming to a stop it wont die but when I put it back into D it will die. If I put it in N when coming to a stop then R for 1 ft I can put it back into D and drive like normal.
When the truck shifts it shifts smooth, the fluid is clean. When going below 20 mph for prolonged period's of time without manually downshifting it will bog down like its in the wrong gear. Hitting O/D does not have any affect.

I am not 100% of how this transmission works and there are no engine codes present. Is it the torque converter not properly coming out of 3rd? bad solenoid?

I don't know which is precisely why I am asking the "experts"
