Automatic trans disengaging

I purchased a 2005 tj auto with 38000 miles in May that had been used as a snow plow. The transmission was replaced at 35000 miles. It now has 40000 miles and has started act as if the transmission is jumping out of gear. I start in the morning and go 100 ft down the drive way, stop and pull out. As soon as I get on the road it acts as if it has slipped out of gear. I shift in and out of all the gears and after about 15 seconds it goes back into gear. I don't know if moving the sifter does anything to help or not. It has done this about 10 times and has always keep going. The fluid is full.
Thanks for any help.

Are you checking the ATF level with the engine running?

Yes, I have checked it several times. When I get to work and when I get home.
My drive way is on a down grade where it happens most when it is cold. But it has happened in a flat parking lot once and once after driving about a mile and stopping, not yet up to operating temp.
Thanks

Unlike our 32RH the 42RLE doesn't matter.

In park.
I don't think the converter was replaced, it was not listed in the paper work I received with the Jeep.
