its does at about all speeds. 20 mph to 60 mph it doesnt matter. as far as miles the od says 298k but i dought its the orginal trans and motor. and throttle wise, it doesnt always do it when i amon the gas even and wheni braking and coming to a stop
it will pop out.

how rusty is it? if the body mounts are rusted through its going to put everything on a weird angle and the body is going to move seprate from the truck. it might switch it out of gear.

going to need a different trans (or pull the trans and swap the tail shaft) a transfercase, linkage, shifter, probably want to do a solid axle in the front, so that axle is up to you, a SAS kit or some fab work. a steering setup and i think that could be it

it might be you shift linkage bushing had the same problem myself. if you look around by where the shift linkage rod comes out of the tranny to a arm that pivots you should see some sort of plastic/teflon bushing mine was black but it if you can wiggle or jiggle it at all its probably more or less the bushing
