Default did air box mod now have some problems...

Well i got off work today and went home and did the airbox mod, took 5 mins not hard at all, the air silencer came out and i took out the peice of plastic the silencer fit into right behind the headlight, put it all back together, def need a K&N, turned the truck on and revved it and at about 3 or 4k rpms the whole truck started to shake and everytime i rev it in park or neutrel the whole truck starts to shake when revved high. now i'm gonna back up a little, for the past few weeks the truck kinda jumps when its idleing, i think it needs new plugs and wires. Could the plugs and wires cause the truck to jump when revving? I think so but would like more opinions.. Thanks

Truck does have a rev limiter at 3K rpms when the truck is in park.

I have to agree check the MAF sensor.

Motorcraft wires.

You'll be glad at this point you don't have a 4.0.
