05 ram hemi hesitation

I have an '05 Ram 1500 with the 5.7 hemi. The truck has 42k miles on it. In just the past couple of weeks the truck has developed a hesitation when starting to accelerate from a dead stop. It's when I first put it in drive and start to step on accelerator it seems there's some hesitation. it's fine if I get on it hard like passing a car. I'm running 89 octane lately to see if that helps. I dont see the rpm gauge jump or anything . I have read that the EGR valve could be going bad ? anyone else have any problems ?

I have the exact same problem. Mines an 05' HEMI 37,000 miles .I had it scaned it said random misfire so I was told to replace the spark plug wires it ran great for 60 miles then the problem returned. I was gonna take it on a 750 mile trip when it acted up again so went home and got the wifes car. got back monday drove it again for about 20 miles then the problem went away again for 20 miles got home started shacking again. Any help appreciated thanks.

keep me posted if you fix the problem. I had a problem with my 97. it would hesitate real bad when it rained, changed the plug wires and it went away. this is on intial take off and seems to be around 45 mph. its just a slight hesitation that i notice, no check engine light yet
