Lost Power

I have a 1998 ram 1500 quad cab 4x4 with the 5.9 ltr. Today, I was driving home and the transmission was shifting a little strange and the truck was losing power and the gas gauge was starting to go down. I would step on the gas and the engine would just bog down. I was reduced to only going about 10 to 15 mph down the road. Any ideas?

Thanks

Thanks, I'll give it a try. Oh by the way, how hard is it to get dual exhaust with the gas tank where it is?
