you could use a floorjack with woodblock to see if the transmission mounts are still okay~ https://www.google.com/#q=2001+Dodge+Ram+Pickup+2500+transmission +mounts&tbm=shop

I have one like that too. Found that the reverse servo arm that has an adjustment nut, snapped off. This has apparently been a problem for some 40 years, since the 70's. You must let it warm up and let the ldle come down before putting it in Reverse.
