automatic transmission shifter jump?

the other day while driving up my wash boarded bumpy driveway, i noticed that my shifter was bouncing back and forth between Drive and Neutral. *the red dot was bouncing between the two* Is this common/supposed to happen? If I hit something hard enough would it jump out of gear?

Don't think it will jump out of gear. Best is look at the dash indicator and see if it's moving there. I have a habit of putting my hand on it in kind of that situation. New one on me though, never heard of it before. Maybe there is a adjustment ? Other trucks have adjustments. Don't know about the Tacoma. If it's just the indicator and not the shifter I would not worry about it.
