Apologies, I did skip a few steps. If you just purchased it, I would change the oil and filter immediately. Make sure you put a decent filter on there, like Wix or Mopar.
If you still have low oil pressure, you need to check it with a mechanical gauge to verify what you are reading on the gauge is correct. Oil Pressure Sending units go bad often enough.
Next, if you still have low oil pressure, you need to take a look at the main bearings, you may have damage to them caused possibly by coolant mixing with your oil. The 00-01 models have a bad head that cracks more often than the other years allowing coolant to mix with oil.
