Auto tranny not shifting until Hight RPM problem

Hello all, this is my first post on the forum. Unfortunately it is for a problem. I have a 95 GC limited with the quadro-trac trans and it is not shifting into the next higher gear soon enough. It seems to go high in the RPM then shift. It does it sometimes and sometimes it doesn't. But I have noticed that it seems like it is getting worst.
Any help on what this would be great. I did check the tranny fluid and it is full and does not appear burnt or anything.
Thanks for the help and I look forward to being on the jeep forum.
Ed

I am no auto mechanic, but to me is sounds as though the clutch plates in the transmision are worn out (And yes automatics do have clutch plates also) When it does shift is it kinda "soggy", like do you feel it shift or does it just kinda rev and then next gear. If the clutch plates are the problem you need to get the tranny rebuilt at a nice cost of 1500 or you could do it yourself...

488, I would say it could be your tranny kick down cable.

Redneck, sounds like it's time for a rebuild My Old 93 ZJ was doing the same thing before I had it rebuilt
