I'm guessing that (1) you're a bit on the short side and (2) that you're trying to shift too fast. We can't help you grow, but when it comes to shifting, our trucks don't like being "speed shifted." Even if you don't double-clutch, they prefer a "1-2" approach when changing gears. When shifting, take it out of gear, pause for a second in neutral, and then go up or down to the desired gear. "Slamming" the gears, like you were driving a sports car, only results in frustration and sore arms. Take it easy and your truck will love you.
