Question about 1997 Dodge Ram 1500 Club Cab
When i come to a stop sign or light my idle drops to 2000rpm and wont stay idling stalls out
That's a very high rpm for an idle! It should be between 700 to 9oo rpm. This truck needs a tune up, at least!

I assume you have power brakes and I gather that it idles properly at times, but dies when the brakes are applied. This sound like a leaking power brake assist vacuum line or diaphram. You can verify this by locating the big vacuum hose connecting the intake manifold to the assist diaphram. This will be about an inch in diameter connected to the round item behind the brake master cylinder next to the firewall.

Change/thoroughly clean the idle control solenoid. It may be sticking and causing rough idling.
Cleaning it is unlikely to be more than a short-term solution.
