torque converter or clutches?

Im fairly unfarmiliar with automatic trans. so im not sure which is going out on my truck. Did a trans. oil anaylisis and iron levels are normal but feels like either my torque converter or clutches would be slipping.Truck just doesnt put the power to the ground like it use to. Its a stock trans and TC so im not suprised with about 125,000 miles. What are some of the giveaways i guess you could say, as to what is slipping or failing? Thanks

I would pull the pan and change the internal filter, that being dirty can restrict the flow of oil and cause all kinds of problems.
If you find any brass in the pan the transmission is done.
Those transmissions are a very week point of the truck.
I have a guy that does transmissions, all kinds, all brands, and he spends at least 50% of his time on the 5 speeds in the Dodges.

Are there certain things while driving to watch for, to help pin point it more also?
