Answers :

If the truck has a catalytic converter in the exhaust system it may be getting plugged. This used to be more common when leaded fuel was available and the lead would plug up the converters. Vehicles with converters required unleaded fuel.
Also check your ignition timing and serviceability of the spark plugs and leads. A faulty ignition system can lead you down the path of what looks like a fuel problem. As the engine RPM increases the timing should advance automatically, does the engine emit a knocking sound when you step on the gas?
Loss of power can more likey be air filter being plugged. A ECM reflash failure. The most likely on your vehicle is to address the throttle body coking. You may or may not have code P2174 (low Aiflow restriction) P 2175 (low air flow restriction slow accumilation). These are common on Dodge for having no power,
