Icon4 FIRST RANGER..MINOR HELP?

just bought my first ranger sunday..did timing belt fuel filter oil change..basic prev. maintenance stuff...but truck idles low(always like this even before timing belt) never dies but jsut low rpm..seems to run ok; takes a little extra gas to get it goin it seems or if you rev it and then stop, upon coming back to idle it drops real low and sounds like it ALMOST dies but comes back up again wiht rpm...i've never gotten truck to die yet though; GREAT truck and i bought it for an extra vehicle, trucks a 97' 4 cyl. 2.3 5-spd..no mil light on. any suggetions? dont ask me why but iac sensor(idle air control) popped in my head as possibility.

lol
i had to do it.

but seriously i have the 4.0 but it used to do that, after changing plugs, wires, IAC, coil pack, and the EGR it stoped. not sure after which one though. forgot. it still will idle down low and almost shut off if im in reverse and tap the gas and let go fast. weird? but it doesnt bother me.
