Default Still having idling issues?

OK still having idling issues with my ranger. I changed my Oxygen sensors, plugs and wires, and cleaned the IAC. BUt the truck stills seems to be having problems. DOnt get me wrong its running better since then. but after about a Min to Two mins of idling in park it starts to bog down and almost seems to miss. it will get down under 1000rpms and sorda surge if that makes sense. I was thinking it could be the a CAT or something. any help would be good.

Even if you cleaned your IAC Doesnt always mean its fixed they are a sensitive part i would consider just replacing it, it is not a hard or expensive way to go. Just my two cents....

What did you use for plugs & wires?
How old is your fuel filter?
When was the last time you ran some fuel injector cleaner through her?
