It sounds like your clutch plate has worn away so slips when under pressure ie,pulling up hill or a heavy right foot.An easy way to test this is to pull your hand break on and try to pull away,if your revs lift without pulling the car then its slipping, there are clutch kits out there for around 50-70,they come with a new clutch plate,new bearing and a new preasure plate.If you do the job yourself make certain that no oily hands or grease gets anywher near the new clutch plate as i found out to my expence.It slipped as the old 1 did so had to do the job twice.Good luck and hope this helps.
best advice is dont go 40mph in 5th gear... if you are going up a hill at 40mph in 5th gear i have no doubt that it is jerking, your putting too much stress on the engine. shift up to 4th or 3rd you will be fine. 5th gear is an overdrive gear. 55+mph
if i was you try to refresh the trans before any other wear happens, drop the pan replace the filter (pops right in) while the fluid makes a mess =) and replace with new fluid, substitute 1 qrt. lucas stop slip for 1 qrt. tranny fluid though, and make sure the dot reccomendation is right for your truck, good luck and that should help it unless your having idle air problem, but if it feels like its sleeping do as i advised, good luck and take care, let me know if it fixed it always good to get follow ups =) c ya
