Default Idle problem

Okay so I have a 2000 Ford Ranger 175,000 miles, 4x4, automatic

I have been having a problem lately with my idling, it used to be every now and then it would idle around 600-750 RPM and then drop to 300 roughly and start choking and sound like it was about to die, which would only happen every now and then, now it happens any time my engine is idling, itll do the same thing then rev up to 1000 RPM and then normalize and then go in that same cycle, i dont know what it is, i just redid spark plugs and ignition wires April 18th 2016, dont ask me why I know the exact date lol! anyh help in diagnosing this would be great!
