Default missing at idle a little then falls on face after 20mins

Hey guys my dodge is not running well at all. At first she started missing real bad and it would go away 2days later now at first start up it will miss a little bit but after a little even just sitting it just starts dropping cylinders and falls on its face. I have replaced plugs wires and fuel pump this week. I thought it was the fuel pump at 2nd because when i shot carb cleaner in the throttle body it would come back alive but this did not fix it. After putting the obd 2 on it it shows a P0132 wich is a o2sensor circut high volatge bank 1 sensor one. This truck does not have a cat on it but im stumped I aint seen an o2 make a truck act like this before.

do you still have a o2 in for the pre cat... it still needs that to adjust for A/F ratios maby its just tweeking sence it aint there... im having a lil problem with mine too... i still have my cat and o2's but i have a dead cell in my batt. and ill start it, well jump it with a jump box, then itl either
run then rpms just start falling off within a min or 2 and i have to hold my foot on the gas to keep it from dieing or it will just not wanna start until i put my foot on the gas but either way after like 20min of driving it will be fine... i think my PCM is forgetting and having to relearn everything due to the dead cell and it not holding a charge
