It could be as simple as needing a tune up or having a clogged catalytic converter.If you have an egg smell coming from that exhaust, have the exhaust looked at.Make sure there is nothing binding the wheels and they turn freely.Be sure your brakes are not binding on the rotors or drums. If you wanna get more power from an already good running engine though, you can add a cold air intake.Performance tune up parts. Or other various bolt on power adders like headers. Synthetic engine oil, is a good addition at your next oil change as well as synthetic lubes in the transmission and rear axle. Make sure your air pressure is where it should be too.Alot of people overlook this . Just remember , your veh. already has about 325 h.p. and 390 lb/ft so if you increase these numbers , you still have to stop that heavy vehicle.That will require beefing up the brake system.It's a great truck, I have one myself.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR SUGGESTIONS.

Shift kit. Less slippage more power to the ground. http://www.summitracing.com/parts/TRG-4L80E-HD2/
