slight slippage??

hey guys, new guy here and also new to rangers but LOVIN it so far. I had a question for you tech guys here. 06 ranger FX4 Level II, 45k, auto. Can feel a slight slippage when kinda at cruisin speed not when pulling. is this something normal or do i need a tranny flush or something. Its not real noticable but at cruising speed at any speed,ex hwy or city. I just got out of an 04 4x2 edge reg cab, and didn't notice anything like that. so i was wondering if it was tranny, rearend gearing, or whatever. Thanks!!

I really doubt it. I just bought here lasrtfriday. Thats why i asked you guys since ya'll are so familiar with these trucks and believe me i'm learning as i go. I looked up the Level II part and seen it came with a lsd. would that have any effect or i should go have the tranny flushed. I do know it was a 1 owner but as far as how well it was serviced i don't know.....

limited slip will have no effect on it.

you could try lucas trans fix, take a quart out and put a quart of that in. its supposed to stop slipping. i have used it it works.
