Did you replace it with a genuine Mopar coil or get another aftermarket one?

He didn't say... and I didn't ask, if there were any more than the P0171 and the P0303. I should have asked. I was anxious to get back on the road. Thinking about it again, I am wondering if somehow the misfire (P0303) could have caused the 'lean' (P0171) code to pop up....

Glad you got it sorted out. It sounded like ignition related for sure, and pretty much the same symptoms a few others have experienced recently, which came down to a bad coil for them too.
