Can you verify that it actually is dropping out of gear, like the engine will rev up when it happens, or are you feeling the converter lock up engaging and the engine rpm's drop, sometimes it will fell like another shift point into a really high gear.

possible low fluid, you checked that im sure, pressure control valve in trans.not holding pressure up,a flush may be in order or,fresh filter and fluid may be needed,low trans front pump worn, not a healthy sign ,raise idle a little if possible, sounds like a 160 k miler and just tired, heaver weight tractor trans fluid at last resort .keep on trucking!

No it drops out of gear and the engine will rev up and then it will some times jump back in gear but most of the time I will have to turn over drive off or drop it into a lower gear for it to grab again

Like Jimmy stated, sounds like the pressures are bad inside the trans, Definitely try a service with a filter change and add some TransX it might help for a while but it isn't long before it quits working.
