Default Rpms Jump at 4k?

My trucks basically stock, has a homemade CAI and Cherry bomb exhaust on it. I'm gunna start to add more performace mods to it, but wanted to do a before and after video of the speed(0-60 and 50-70) pretty much. Never really get on it due to gas, but i've recently ordered a 50mm TB and before it put anything else on it i wanted to make the "before" video. The problem im having is when I go WOT at about 4k its almost like the truck is misses I guess and the RPM's just jump from 4k to redline. Kind of hard to explain but I have a video of it if i can post one on here?? Anyone have any idea?

I've got ideas but I need to know the year, model and engine of your truck to start with. Does the MIL come on? Have you scanned the PCM yet?

Sorry, meant to list that. Its a 1996 Dodge 1500, Standard, 5.2. Check engine light does not come on(actually doesnt work anymore but i've scanned it at work and will do the same today also). I've been having a problem with it just dying while driving, only does it randomly, sometimes starts right back up and sometime takes a while. But then it drives fine, usually it occurs only in the morning but has happened once or twice after work. Wondering if this and the other problem are related?
