I would try a new fuel filter and see if that helps, if not then its best to do a fuel pressure test.

I own a 1995 k1500 Chevy. Once I first start my truck it has all the power but after going a short distance taking off it is sluggish. Can anyone please help me out?

Have someone who knows what they're doing check your catalytic converters- if they get plugged up it bogs the engine down and affects performance as well as fuel economy. Also check your fuel pressure- those trucks are notorious for the fuel pumps going out.

I have a 1995 Chevy Suburban K1500 with a 350 4x4, when I start it runs good. When I put it in gear and let idle it wants to die for the first couple or miles and then it's fine. I have changed the plugs,...

I would look at the timing belt if it's never been replaced. Sounds like it is having issues under a load or the tensioner isn't working properly. Another possible issue could be a vacum component that isn't functioning properly until the engine and transmission get wormed up.
