Well so far just some front suspension slighty bouncy at the moment when hitting bumps but other then that no real problems. Just mainly wondering if there has been major issues with this style of truck

I don't know about that but I never start worrying until I need to worry.

The saying is " If it ain't bad, don't fix it". Life is too short for us to worry about what is going to happen tomorrow.

Have a nice day.

Ok on this same 1997 dodge ram 1500 slt larimee 4x4 5.2l v8. I was driving down the road and all the sudden engine light comes on and loose pretty much all power to go up hills. Like theres no power at all. Thought at first transmisson but then going down hill it will shift up to a point and be ok for a shake but going up hill at the moment maybe 15 mph. Im thinking catalytic converter has gone out and clogged exhaust creating power loss possible?

Get a scan done to check the trouble codes and let me know what it is.

Autozone provides free scanning services.

I dont have equipment for error codes but I do know this much I drilled a hole in each exhaust before the catalytic converter and it worked for a bit there but is only 1/2 inch holes so I believe I will finish cutting it out so as to make it by til I can repair properly and or make it to a repair shop until then I need to be able to make it to and from work so fingers crossed it works til wednesday I know will be loud as ever though

There is a possibility the catalytic converter is plugged and if that is the case, you would need to check for misfiring as well. Misfirings can cause the cat converter to overheat and collapse internally.
