Default newb here with a weird running rough issue

Hey guys! Just bought me a 97 reg cab short bed 4wd 5.2 with 167xxx on the ticker.I haven't done anything to it yet but replace the upper dash with one from the dealer,fixed a vacuum leak so my ac works going up hills,put a k&n on it,and put a cd player in it.So here is my issue....when I first start the truck it runs fine for about 20 sec or so then it runs absolutley terrible for about 15-20 sec,then back to normal.My dodge mechanic buddy and I hooked it up to his computer tonight and after making the truck do it a few times he came to the conclusion that the upstream 02 sensor needs replacing.I trust him but I want to ask here to see if this is a common problem with the 5.2......if this sounds right do you guys recomend a online discount mopar parts site? Thanks. Pics of the truck coming soon but don't expect a show truck,lol!!! Its a work in progress!!! Got to get her runnin right 1st!!!
