Here's a link to an article from California's EPA and the procedures for buying a vehicle out of state. Looks like I won't be going to Texas unless that Dodge Ram is California Certified and will state it on the emissions label. The article was dated in 2000.
I checked the data on the 2001 Dodge Ram and it scored poorly in the 40 mph offset crash test. http://www.hwysafety.org/vehicle_ratings/ce/html/summary_lgpickup.htm
The 2002 Dodge Ram has not been tested in the 40 mph offset crash test but was tested in the 5 MPH bumper crash test and it beat out Ford 150, Chevy/GMC Silverdo/Sierra and the mighty Toyota Tundra in this area.
I am going to wait and see if the new Dodge 1500 can beat the mighty Toyota Tundra in the 40 MPH offset crash test. I suspect that it should based on its performance in the 5pmh bumper test and improvements in its frame. I'll wait for the new crash data before I will buy this pickup. I may even call the IIHS and see if they have a crash test date for the new Ram.
