Could be, I'm not familiar with Bully Dog

> Does "increased transmission pressure" mean lower shift points, and does it mean higher risk of blown seals and leaks?

Honestly, your guess is as good as mine. Did I mention you need to talk to a transmission mechanic?

> I have a pretty good understanding of cars and engines, but auto trannies and diesels are my weakest points.

Doubt I'm more than a few paragraphs further along in the trannie & diesel service manual than you are.

In the spring (when i next need my truck) i will call up a TRUCK tranny shop and see what a fluid change, shift kit and oil change will cost me. Might make all the difference that I need...

I'd start by describing symptoms and you problems with symptoms and see what they suggest. If they say: shift kit + filter + fluid + not too much for labor = lots better, then go for it.
