Honestly, I would say its your Mass airflow sensor. Sounds like your truck is sucking either not enough, or too much for the air/fuel mixture to compensate. Thats what it sounds like to me. I would replace that, or even clean it. If you take it out, and clean it up real good with some alcohol, you might catch a break as well. Hope all goes well.

Tips for a great answer:
Engine stalls or RPM
fluctuates at idle up and down or dies near idle.
This problem is commonly caused by a dirty automatic idle speed control valve and throttle valve but always run a OBD2 fault code as well as the cleaning procedure. Buy a can of throttle valve cleaner (do not use carburetor spray cleaner!) from NAPA or Carquest (made by CRC chemicals) and spray it into the air intake while the engine is running, use up about 1/2 the can, engine will try to stall hold the speed up, shut it down and let it soak for 30 minutes, restart and blow out the remaining fluid, shut it down and disconnect the negative battery cable for 5 Min's to reset the base idle control
