Unhappy RPM Jump at highway speeds

New to the forum, so I hope this question hasn't already been covered. Lately my truck has been acting up at speeds above 55 mph. Above that my enging will rev a bit and I will watch the rpm's jump by about 3 hash marks. Sometimes it's every once in a while, other times constantly: up and down. It's even worse when I apply the cruise control. It was suggested to me that it's my "shift solenoid". Any other theories?

Like what "TOM" said above...depends on a few things...And if it is an automatic, I wouldnt leave out the option of your tranny going bye bye...Could possibly be your high end gears are slipping in and out....

your tranny fluid could also be low...or overfilled...maybe the tranny fluid filter is clogged...

Was the problem ever found and solved?!!?! My 08 Ram Trx4 is doing the same thing. Sometimes it's fine other times the rpm jumps a few noches, definately when the cruise control is on at 100 + Km/h
