Fuel filter/Pressure regulator is located on the top of the fuel pump module. Here is how you can replace it in the diagrams below. Here is a video as well.

You're not going to like this but it's under the vehicle, center, below seating area, mounted on top of fuel tank, in fuel pump module. You have to remove the fuel tank to get to it.

The components that Raz referred to are inside the fuel tank and require removing the tank to replace. The filter in this vehicle is not serviced as a maintenance item.

Unless your coming up to Virginia, MN. The cold weather isnt going to affect your fuel. Its not really that cold over in Virginia state. More so than Al but should make no diff. Truck profromence. It wouldnt hurt to put new filter on but probally not help unless you got some really high miles on truck or you like to run tank bone dry.
Let us know if we can answer any further?
Good luck on trip jess s.

Where is the gas filter located on a 2001 Dodge Ram 1500 V8. My truck runs good sometimes, but will stall out at times too. It also feels like it may be jerking at times just started when we started having problems with water in the gases in our area ( Ohio)

All Models 1. Disconnect negative battery cable. Release fuel pressure. See FUEL SYSTEM PRESSURE RELEASE. Install fuel pressure gauge with hose on fuel pressure test port. 2. Start engine, allow to idle and reach operating temperature. Fuel pressure should be 44.2-54.2 psi (3.1-3.8 kg/cm 2 ). If no fuel pressure exists and engine will not start, fuel pump relay and control circuit may be defective. See FUEL PUMP RELAY. 3. If engine runs but fuel pressure is less than specified, check for kinked or damaged fuel line between fuel pump module and fuel rail. Repair fuel line as necessary and retest. If fuel line is okay, perform FUEL PUMP AMPERAGE TEST, FUEL PUMP VOLUME TEST and FUEL PRESSURE LEAKDOWN TEST. If specifications were not met for FUEL PUMP AMPERAGE TEST, FUEL PUMP VOLUME TEST or FUEL PRESSURE LEAKDOWN TEST, replace fuel pump module. See appropriate REMOVAL, OVERHAUL & INSTALLATION article. If fuel pressure exceeds specification, fuel pump is okay, but fuel pressure regulator is defective. Replace fuel pressure regulator. Fuel pressure regulator is incorporated with the fuel filter. Fuel filter/fuel pressure regulator is located on top of fuel tank, in fuel pump module. See appropriate REMOVAL, OVERHAUL & INSTALLATION article. 2/21/2010 .

Good morning,

Yes, it could be fuel delivery related but the first thing I would do is check the fuel pressure. Low fuel pressure will cause this issue.

https://www.2carpros.com/articles/how-to-check-fuel-system-pressure-and-regulator

As far as the filter, it is possible but there is a bypass when it gets blocked.

I attached a picture of the location of the filter. it is on top of the fuel pump assembly on the tank.

Well welcome to the world of Dodge you do not have a fuel filter it is intergrated in the fuel pump. With that said I would like to know if you can find out what the fuel pressure is. What side of the tank do you normally run on the upper side or the do you run to empty before refilling? Is the check engine light on? Get back to me and we will see what we can find.
