MAF has been cleaned, and IAC is brand new as of about 2 months ago. It is clean as well.

I'm actually split on what it could be. I have an intermittent P0741 code that comes up, and it seems that my torque converter intermittently gets stuck off. So it could be TCC circuit related, but the stalling should only happen if the TC is locked at a stop, not when it's unlocked. Of course, it could be locking up and not unlocking as well, I just haven't gotten a code for that yet. I'm probably 70% hung on the TC issues being the cause. Plug wires and plugs are cheaper though, and easier to replace, so 30% of me is hoping it's that. If you add up the facts, there's an 90% chance it's my TC lockup having issues. It's just gay cause I'm 400 miles shy of 50,000. It's too early for this. If I had a second vehicle and more money, this wouldn't be a problem and I would already have the Valve Body out and rebuilt with the Ford updates. I'm just broke, and without another vehicle, so I can't take this one down for a significant amount of time.

When the truck is cold, it runs great. But as it warms up, say after 10-15 minutes of driving, the idle drops down to 600. A few minutes later the idle will start to fluctuate between 400 and 750. Sometimes it will die. Then, as I accelerate, the truck moves forward, but then it kind of shakes a little, bogs down significantly, then immediately picks back up and goes. The only codes that show up are that P0741 trans code, which only get tripped whenever the truck maintains constant speed above 45 mph.
