Default 4.0 Stutter when lightly on the gas

Hey guys, I have a 96 auto 2wd and I've noticed recently that when I'm just barely on the gas it stutters. Pedal is probably .5-1 inch engaged and it stutters but doesn't stutter on take off or anything. I'm not having any codes being thrown. I couldn't find any other threads on this issue. Any ideas?

It's not idling rough. Plugs and wires I want to say are about 3 years old.

Possibly a dirty throttle body.

Fuel Filter has never been changed can't believe I didn't think of that, and Ill try and inspect the throttle body tomorrow.
