Default engine bucks and pops

i have a 95 ram 1500 4x4 5.9 engine and it has a problem
when i driving starting around 40 mph-70mph it kind of cuts out, bucks and sometimes even backfires, have had it to the shop 4 times and to much money and still nothing can fix it.
have replaced
erg valve
o2 sensor
coil
crank sensor
pick up coil
cap and rotor pck
speed sensor
new computer
even had the trany rebuilt
and the throttle control something

this has been goin on for about 3 years this happens everytime i drive it
seems to get alittle better when the truck has warmed up but still you can feel it cutting out, the only thing is the rpm dont drop when this happens
anyone got any ideas?

Anyone do a test to see if the belly pan gasket is blown out? Are you consuming oil in between changes? Fouling plugs, particularly the back ones?

I'm just going to throw these idea's at you, I haven't turned wrenches in several years, except on my own trucks. You might check the timing. Timing chain could be very sloppy or even jumped a tooth. Also could be moisture in gas tank, try some dry gas.

i noticed you didnt replace the tps sensor. give that a shot. it sends signal to your ecm to tell it how much fuel to feed. if its not sending the right info, the engine will not get enough fuel for them speeds. therefore backfiring and bogging etc.

thanks i do consume some oil and it dosnt leak in my drive way so figured im burning it

have tried the gas issue and its all good as well as my gas presure is fine
will look into the tps sensor

this problem seems to be worse when i disengage the overdrive then after the truck gets warm it becomes less of a issue.

My 2001 dodge ram 1500 is also having the same problem. this is the second week its in the garage. I cant figure out the issue either. The problem comes and goes. I took it to the dealer for the new updates.It ran better for a week and now the same problem.The check engine light is not coming up with the problem. I am thinking fuel filter/pump in tank.Not sure.

Randy is usually right, after all he works on these engines
a bad belly pan gasket would do what yours is doing, read this thread
