Aright I'm a Dodge Guy down to the very end but my 89' 318 is really startin to piss me off i love off roadin but when climing hills and stuff, towards the end it doesn't wanna go much farther. I've done a full tune up fuel filter, 02 senser, plugs wires cap rotor. I'd like to find a Throttle body spacer for some more throttle response but i honestly have looked high and low and cannot find anything for that truck besides exhaust. Please any idea's, websites, or anything else you can suggest would be greatly appreciated.

Aright well just wanna thank you all for your advice. To answer some?'s I"m rollin on 33x12.5.15 BFG MT/R's just had them put on. I had a full tune up done The entire truck only has 63,000 miles on it... To answer another? When in 4 Low it does do much better i was just talkin about in 2WD I plan on doin headers and cat back dual exhuast. I've got the K&N and my compression is fine. i would like to change the cam over any suggestions? My gearing i believe is 3.14 in the front and 3.83 in the rear.. if those sound wrong there some where close to that i cant remember off the top of my head, yea and i have the same problem with accelerating too i love my truck but i really gotta be pushin some more power. Me and my friends were talking about installing a new torque converter with low stall which would put more power to the wheels. Has any one done this if so how did it it go? And another ? is since my A/C is broken if i were to disable that could i get more power?
I checked and you were rite i do have a 3.90 in the rear and i couldn't find out what i had in the front it wasn't much smaller than that. I found the chip for my truck and am considering putting it on my truck. I've hurd adding a chip to an older truck could possibly dammage the computer or engine... is this true? If now what are the risks thati may take by adding this. I was thinking that my cat may be clogged.
To answer some one elses reply I have really light alloy rims on there, not to speak for the tires those things weigh like a hundred a piece or close to.
