22 platinum. My truck is sometimes sticking in 3rd gear until it reves to 5k.
Other times it skips 2nd. Is that usually resolved with a update?

Possibly, or you can try the easiest thing first. Reset the PCM. Disconnect *both terminals* at the battery for at least an hour then reconnect and drive the truck like normal and let it readapt. If the issue persists, I would take it to the dealer.

Could be a CDF drum thing? That affects 3-5 I think. I can't ever see this dumb software seeing a situation where 3rd needs to be held beyond 2.5k realistically in normal driving

My 2019 truck had the same problem along with occasional "clunky" shifts when jumping from 1st to 3rd, especially when cold. My dealer started by resetting the self learning and when that didn't work they ended up replacing the transmission "main valve control body" twice on it and it never resolved the issue. I think these transmissions are "the luck of the draw" since many owners back in 2019, 2020 claimed their transmissions were smooth as silk all the time. Now, with my 2022 truck, I am claiming mine is smooth as silk and here you are reporting yours is sticking in 3rd like my old one did. Good luck! (I solved my problem by trading my 2019 in on my current truck.) By the way, skipping 2nd is normal operation, it's just supposed to be a smooth skip; in tow-haul and sport modes it won't skip gears.

Good morning. Would you please send over a private message with your VIN and dealer info so I can look into your gear shift concern on my end?

You running in Sport mode when that happens? When I’m in Sport, mine holds 3rd for a long time when not giving it all the beans…
