Default perhaps a solution to our problem...

Hi Aggie, I to have the very same problem with my truck. if you have a dodge ram 1500 standard cab short bed w/ a 3.7L then chances are you are running a 3:55 gear ratio. i have done a K&N and a magnaflow exhaust so far but still experiencing the same problems as you. my next move is to up the gears from 3:55 to 3:90 or 3:92. there is really no difference in those two gears, but it does depend who you buy from, from any gear shop you will get a 3:90 if you go direct with dodge u will get 3:92. the difference is cost. from a shop about $250 just for gears from a dodge dealer about $500. plus labor from dodge is about $800 and the labor from an ASE certified shop is about $400. hope this helps!
