If you're concerned about being able to go back, buy a throttle body off eBay... it's common to the 5.2 used in Jeep and Dodge models of that era... you can get one in good condition for ~$40....

1500, and the 2500/3500 have different frames... from memory, the rear springs are longer on the bigger trucks... they are likely wider also.

The passenger side door-lock actuator is acting up on my '98.

Typically, OEM's only have to provide parts for 10yrs after a model release... then you have to chase down remaining stock on shelves, and rely on aftermarket parts.
