At slower speeds around 12 to 18 mph, I experience a slipping feeling in the transmission. It feels like it is searching for a gear and doesn't lock up positively into second gear.

Most current year to select was 2010 BUT, this issue is in the 2013 Ram 2500 Hemi also....from a dead stop with light acceleration, engines surges as is trys to shift from 1st to 2nd. Only way around it is to granny drive it.
