Not to be a dick, but California sucks. Have you check Flowmaster? Only thing I can tell you is move to Florida and never have to worry about smog.

Magnaflow has universal cats and they have an EO#, probably your best bet.

Have you gone to any local junk yards to see if any of the Rams in there might have a "stock" cat with the correct numbers you need? then after you pass emissions, put the cat on you want and just save the "stock" cat for a couple years till you need to pass emissions again?

I don't know if its federal law or not but I don't think you can buy "cats" from any junkyard.

Had the cat on my 96 replaced at Midas. The original cat started falling apart inside. There was a notice that chrysler would replace the defective cat within ten years or 100k miles if it started rattiling inside, which mine did but missed the 10 year mark. Midas replaced the cat and y pipe for ~$580. Some of the "universal" cats only have a mount for one o2 sensor which doesnt play well with the computer system when there is a pre AND post cat o2 sensor input.
