Question Not Wanting To Shift

I just bought a 1997 dodge ram 2500 4x4 with a 6' lift kit and and 40" tires. mechanicaly it seems decent, other than it does not want to shift out of second gear untill around 3200 rpm, and rides around 2200 instead of 1500. he told me that he never changed the gear ratio in the differentials. my question is will this fix the problem, and if so does anyone know what the stock gear ratio is, and any recomendations as to what ratio i should go to for mostly road driving? in addition, it shakes when driving on the highway, any ideas?
