Exclamation It seems like something is slow to respond

Every now and then when i push on the gas, like when i leave a 20 MPH zone into like say a 45 or 50 MPH, it seem like my truck almost dies it slows down my RPMS drop so its not like mt trany isnt catching then all of a sudden it fires up and rpms fly up and i accelerate fine. i was wondering if there could be a bad spark plug or spark plug wire or is there something else i need to look at.

check your fuel filter.....if its partially clogged it may cause the motor to bog down during quick acceleration

better yet...dump a can of Seafoam in the tank, drive around until you use about 1/2 the tank then change the filter
