the 4.7 is a strong motor but the 3rd generation rams (2002-newer) with the auto trans are not geared low enough. Because of this they are constantly downshifting while towing. Chances are the truck has 3.55 or 3.73 gears, by switching those out to a 4.56 the truck would pull great, not search for gears, and get better gas milage at speeds under 70.
