It probably takes off from a stop very sluggish too. It appears your trans is in fault mode "Limp In". The trans controller sees a problem and can't compensate so it stays in second gear. You need to take this to a transmission specialist that can scan the faults and troubleshoot the issue. If you don't know a trustworthy one then I suggest going to the nearest "Five Star Chrysler Dealer". They will have the technical knowledge and training to effectively deal with it. There is a possibility that the software is more of an issue than internal transmission failure. And do yourself a favor, have the transmission serviced after they solve the issue.
Good luck with that and let me know how it goes.

there is an idle control motor on the throttle body. If you pull the air tube off of the throttle body and look to the rear of the throttle butterflies you will see the passage for the air to flow through to the idle air control motor. You should also see the tip of the pintle of the IAC. Use a screw driver and carefully push/pry the pintle back into the throttle body.
If the vehicle starts and idles than remove the IAC (2 torx screws hold it to the throttle body) and clean it with some carb spray. Clean the bore that it sits in as well with carb spray.
If the pintle on the IAC looks like it has wear marks in it replace it.
This is a fairly common problem with the dodge trucks.

well there are alot of problems that can cause this irst things first... have the codes checked these will tell you alot. or atleast point you in the right direction. I you are not able to get the PCM scanned then you are looking at alot of testing, check the fuel pressure, make sure the fuel regulator is holding the pressure correctly. then make sure the injectors are pulsing correctly. then on to the throttle possition sensor you need to make sure its ready the sweep proporly, then onto the idle air control motor if its equiped with one. well that should keep you busy or a while if its none of those then ill keep working down the line.
