Default Ranger auto tranny will not shift correctly

Hello. I replaced the 4r44e transmission in my ranger about 3 months ago. Everything was fine until last week. While my wife was driving, the transmission seemed to be hunting in and out of overdrive. Then it seemed to shift slowly after leaving the intersection. This was around town, and the engine actually shut off twice on her at red lights. It started up fine after being shifted back to park.
After driving the truck home, it then refused to shift. The lever would move normally, but the truck wouldn't go anywhere.
I took out the computer, and took it to a shop. They said the processor was bad, and gave me a replacement unit. This unit did not fix my issue, and I returned it. The shop ran a diagnostic and that unit was faulty as well. So I am now on my third computer and still the truck will not shift and is parked on the street in front of my home.
I have checked the fuses, and changed the brake switch. No luck so far. My wife is on me to get this fixed as soon as possible, I would prefer to not have this vehicle towed at this point.
Has anyone out there experienced anything this weird with their vehicle? I want to rule out as much as possible before sending it to the dealer or another shop. We have had some bad experiences with flaky mechanics the last few years.

Make sure the fluid is at the correct level, and unplug the battery overnight.
