Question: 1995 Isuzu Rodeo Transmission losing power.

Just recently my transmission/engine has been losing power when I'm on the high way going at high speeds. I know my RPM's never go over 3,000 while I'm driving between 60-80mph. Lately while driving my truck would just lose it's power and I would have to rev it past 4,300 RPM's. The fluid is still clean and full I added Lucas stop leak but that has failed. My engine is almost brand new. I had most of it rebuild, the cooling system still works just fine. I heard it could be the TPS but I'm not for sure. Any ideas?
