How can I increase the power of my 3.9 it is terrible when going up a hill

two really easy ways to increase power, drivability and fuel economy is add a cold air intake from k&n such as an FIPK system and a computer reprogrammer from a company like hypertech. both are great on the dodges and you will notice a difference. this comes at a price however, figure on spending from $600 - $1000 for both pieces. cold air intake takes a little bit of work to install but is still relatively easy and the reprogrammer is extremely easy. so easy infact, you wont even get your hands dirty!!

you also can change out the gears in your rear axle and front if you have 4wd to a 4.11 gear ratio
