First off, WTF the mechanic was doing driving your truck off-duty??? F****N A****LE!! That would piss me off too!! And you can be sure they would fill her up real quick......

My .02 is that your cat is plugging, or o2 sensors going out (most likely pre-cat), but it would'nt be going away at higher speeds.
Did you get a CEL when it was running?? If so what fault code did you get? I don't know where you are, but some auto parts stores will lend you a code reader for free.

Other causes for this would be:
Bad injector
Failing coil
Failing Camshaft position sensor (pick up coil)

But considering it backfires out the TB, I would say it's not exhausting properly.

I run Champion plugs on my truck. Stay away from Accel and the likes. Dodges also don't appreciate aftermarket sensors much....
Can't remember the gap tho....
