Default 5.9 Slug

Hi everyone I am a newbie to the fourms,I just purchased a 1996 2500 short bed 5.9 manual 5 speed and drove it back to IL from MI. pulling a 2010 chrsyler town-country and this thing is a slug on upper half of the throttle. It was hard pressed to run 65 MPH. This being my frist Ram for years is this normal for this truck?
Thanks Ed
