The dodge suspension feels like it handles the weight better but that’s it. Most of the time I wish I would of just got a New Denali or just another Chevy. Probably would of been happier with a used chevy vs this dodge I had since new. But if it doesn’t void the warranty I’ll give it a shot

Throttle boosters do not void the warranty.

Life's too short to be driving a truck you don't like. So if it's that bad, go get a Chevy. I was so unhappy in my last couple Ford trucks and tried out a 2014 ram 3500 and bought it that day! Best decision I ever made, it puts a smile on my face every time i drive it!

OK, getting back to the OP’s issue; I have an ‘18 3500 dually, Aisin, CTD HO. There is an entry ramp that I frequent that is a tough pull. I-15 N north of Vegas, Logandale, NV. It has a 3rd truck lane that also serves as the entry lane. Getting on the freeway there, pulling my Raptor @18000 lb, when I put ‘er to the wood I can get up to about 60 going up that hill. If you are only pulling 3800 lb and can only do in the 50 MPH range, you definitely have problems.
Don’t compare your Ram to the Ford, they pull different......just the way they are. I have had a bunch of Fords.....Good trucks. I have had a bunch of Chevy’s, they all left me on foot. This is my first Ram, so far I am happy. But the Cummins has altogether different characteristics than the powerstroke.

Hopefully the OP has had this resolved as this thread is a over a year old. Lol. But yes, he definitely had an issue I would say.

A year old but ill still comment. I have a 14 aisin. Total crap for down shifting, sometimes takes up to 3 seconds. My trick for instant shifts is manual shift it. Also get efi live and full delete, really perks up the truck and holy smokes did my fuel bill ever drop. Even the lie-o-meter on the dash went from 21 average to 16-17 town/city driving. Highways im at a cool 14. .....Canadian numbers btw.

I loved my truck untill a new Canadian in a semi came around a 70 corner in the winter at 100+ and used the drivers side of my truck to keep his trailer on the road. Douche bag didnt even stop. 37000$ so far into the fix, its in the shop for the 5th time.

I waited until 100k and put a Calibrated Power tune on it. Night and day difference. I"m still emissions legal, in a nice truck, but it sure does have more power and a lot better transient and mid-range response.

But I agree. These trucks are slow. The Fords and Chevy's will walk them, no doubt about it. I still like my Cummins.
