Yeah. Your transmission is most likely failing. Dodge made horrible transmissions. Take it to a transmission shop.

Wrong answer, Dodge never make horrible things how ever you need to take care of your truck and that would be my guess. I know about Durango´s out there driven more than 300.000 miles on original tranny with nothing done unless what is needed which is a fluid and filter change and band adjustment if you got 5,2 or 5,9 l engine but 4,7 don´t have bands so not needed there. Take your truck to a good tranny shop and have them ceck it out it could be a bad sensor or a rebuild, can´t tell unless you take it to a sood shop you can trust.

Sorry Sigurður, I would agree that Dodge transmissions were not bad when they were maintained properly. The transmission is the most intricate and complex part of a vehicle and it is often the most neglected.
