Dodge Ram 1500 (missing, surging shaking)

I have a 97 Ram 1500 4wd automatic. The problem is 45 mph to 60 mph with engine under a slight load, the truck surges. Chrysler says they have been aware of the problem since they first stated building the truck in 1994. Of course they did not tell me this before buying their truck! They say they can not repair the miss or surge, and that it is the nature of the V/8 automatic 4w/d Ram in other words they say they all do it to some extent. I have been through Arbitration, to no success. I am now entering into a law suit against Daimler Chrysler to replace the vehicle. The truck is still under factory warranty. Is there any one else who has been down this (rough road)? Any sugestions?
