If you havent done so yet I would try doing a compete tuneup.

Spark Plugs
Ignition Wire Set
Distributor Cap
Ignition Coil

Also may wanna test your injectors and/or try some seafoam. You could have a stuck injector.

Also your oxygen sensors might be going bad (downstream is most common). Both Rams ive owned had a baf o2 sensor code (both downstream) shortly followed by misfiring.
