truck hesitates

hello everyone, i am new here as a member but have been reading posts for quite some time, anyway my problem is this, when driving up a long hill going about 30-35 mph and at about 2500 rpm and i get into the throttle the truck will increase rpm's to about 3100 and barely any acceleration, but if i back off and then get on it again it will downshift and take off. fuel filters have been changed, the most recent flash has been done, and the truck is stock (for now) currently just over 15,000 miles Thanks Matt
