Running Rough

Anyone else have their truck running rough even after a full tune-up? I just got a tune up done to my work truck and it is already running rough again. Its maybe been 3-4K miles. They did the wires, plugs, coil pack, fuel filter, ect...
I told my office that they need to send it back to the place where they had the truck worked on but they said Nah, We are ordering you a new work truck at the first of the year.
Although that is great, I would still like the truck to run better. It has stalled out on me once on friday and only averages 15mpg.
Any recomendations?

If it's stalling, you can try some throttle body cleaner on it, and clean the IAC too.

Make it safe to drive, and hope first of the year comes quickly.......
