I just had a thought as I was posting this, could it be the catalytic converter
that blinded off?

Out of curiosity how did you determine the timing chain is not the issue ???

The timing chain doesn't have to jump a tooth... it can be, A stretched timing chain and that will cause the exact same problem... 99 to 01 were what we call gender years. Dodge screwed with all their better ideals and passed them along... and turned out it just made some issues worse...
