Rough shifts

Recently if i floor it it shifts really hard. Also sometimes when i come to a stop at a light, it will kinda of surge forward a bit and the rpms go up a but. I just replaced the TPS and IAC so they should be go to go. I have a 2000 4.7 with about 153,000 miles on it. Any ideas what cause these issues?

Sounds like its low on tranny fluid. I just did a filter and fluid change on my 00 wj 4.7 and after installing a aux tranny cooler it took 7 1/2 qts to fill it. Make sure you use ATF 4

How did you check it? Engine up to normal operating temp and trans in neutral?

check for vacume leaks. PCV could be culprit causing the surge as well.
