Congrats on your new truck!

Look at my truck. I have an 01 Sport Offroad Edition.

Easy way to tell: Sport has body color front and rear bumpers and quad beam headlights.

Offroad Edition will say 4x4 Offroad on the tailgate and you can check to see if the front axle housing is trussed, or reinforced. It also sits up higher stock and came with 17x8 inch rims with 33" tires.

I would change all the fluids and filters. Transmission fluid, oil, transfer case, axles, etc. Change the sparkplugs, distributor cap and rotor. Check to see if your plenum gasket is good. Jack up the front end and rock the tire back and forth to check your ball joints and steering for wear.

Mine has been a good truck, but it sucks gas like no other. I average about 11 city and 13-14 highway. I'm battling a/c issues right now.

You are not kidding. When I went from my 2000 Sport to my 2013 Sport my MPG doubled!

Dito that, the headlights should be clear and see through, other models that I saw quad lights were not see through/clear I think. Also there should be a little plastic emblem piece on the back of the cab that says "SPORT." At least my old 2001 Ram did.

Any chance you can post a pic of your truck?

Yep, mine have those badges behind the rear doors on the C pillars.
