Question Help!... 04 Tacoma SR5 4x4 tranny problem?

I'm not sure if I am having a tranny problem or what it is really but here's what I have:
2004 Tacoma SR5 4x4 Automatic
180,000 miles

and here's what it is doing to the best of my observation:

in Overdrive, going up a slight grade, usually seems that it does it at low rpms(1500 to 2000) feels like it is trying to jump out of gear for a second then right back in, but if you hold it around the same rpm it will keep doing it. It's almost a jerk feeling. So I did a lil experimenting and it seems that it only does it in OD as I turned the OD off and it didn't do it but I wasn't in that low rpm range then.

Have you checked the trans fluid to make sure it's at the right level? If that's fine I would say the only other thing would be if one of the bands in the trans is going. You've got quite a few miles on it.

Ya I checked the fluid... I was afraid it could be the tranny but someone suggested to me that it could be missing to replace the plugs and wires.
