Default 6th Gear

I realize this is a late reply, but I am relatively new to the forum. I own a 2008 Ram SXT Regular Cab 6 speed manual. I regularly use 6th when I have reached a cruising speed anywhere from 55 and up. My truck will accelerate from 55 mph up in 6th, but if I want to pass, I will simply downshift to 5th or 4th. I use 6th basically as an overdrive to help with gas mileage. I could see where your truck might lose speed going up an incline, or maybe because it is heavier than mine (possibly a crew cab). I hope otherwise your Ram is serving you well (mine is.)
