Exclamation 03 ram 4.7 running hot, bogs down and stalls

I have a 03 ram 1500 slt with the 4.7L it'll run hot about 3/4 the way on temp Guage, sometimes hotter but not all the way to hot... sometimes about 8th of an inch from overheating. Two days ago it started to have a rev limiter and won't allow me past 3k rpms under heavy throttle. It'll run fine till u try to go above 3k. When slowing down to stop... it's died on me twice. The first time started right be up... the second, had to hold the key over till it finally started.

Things I've done:
New timing chain
Fan clutch
Tstat
Flushed radiator w/ blue devil flush
Blue devil head gasket sealer
And oil change

Has 196xxx miles.
