Stalling at stops...

Just got a new (to me) 99 Ram 1500, manual transmission. Runs great, except... frequently the engine stalls as I coast to a stop. Seems to happen most when it's cold (like as I exit the parking lot just after starting the engine), but it can happen any time. At speed, no problems at all. After Jeeps and Toyotas, this is my first Dodge truck, so I have no idea what the common issues are. Any suggestions?

first thing to try is clean throttle bores of grunge with carb clean. Makes a big difference.

Turned out to be the wheel speed sensor (the one on the rear axle). It had been dropping out below 20 mph (strangely, the OBD thought it was an oxygen sensor problem). Finally the sensor failed completely, and when I replaced it, the problem went away.
