I wonder if the hesitation is worse when the Truck is cold. If so, the seals are failing and it's time for an overhaul. When the trans warms up, those old, stiff seals get a little more pliable and work a little better. It would help a little to know the engine and trans types though.

Sorry friend. It really sounds like time to have the transmission repaired or replaced. It's not a popular thing to say on this forum but Ford Dealers do have a great warranty on their reman transmissions and the price isn't bad compared to an overhaul.
