Default shaking at idle

i have a mazda b2500,everyone says its basically the same truck as the ranger so i decided to come here. but yea when i start it up it shakes a fair amount,but once i get it above 1500 rpms it settles down and runs fine. i no im being very vague but thats really all the info i have at this point.

Maybe it has diabetes and shakes b/c it's sugar is low.

it shakes a good amount. its very noticeable. but once it gets passed 1500rpms it runs perfectly.

EDIT: i also just replaced all the spark plugs last week. the amount of shaking went down after we replaced the plugs but its still noticeable
