Truck seems to die.

I have an 01 4.0 SOHC ranger, it seems to run fine when am driving it. But when it sits and idels or even sometimes when am in drive but not moving, it will rev up and down untill it eventully dies. Any ideas? Also, am going to change the spark plugs and wires any suggestions on which ones to get
