    Dirty throttle body ?
    Give it a cleaning , remove the battery posts and do an idle re-learn
    I have seen throttle cables fry in the past due to crappy grounds but usually they get so hot , they never function again .
    Also very common for the shifter cable going down to the transmission to fry .
    This can be fixed by cleaning as well as adding extra grounds throughout the truck body to frame

    Yes it has an AIC, and it only happens at idle, at stop lights and such but it doesn’t happen all the time. I can’t imagine that it’s manifold vacuum keeping it stuck... ehhh springtime now, I will figure it out eventually and write a novel or at least a pop up book about it...

    push and pull axially(in and out) on the throttle body bell crank and see how much play there is at idle and part throttle. I bet that the throttle body is just worn and the plate is binding in the bore.

    You can always just have the throttle body rebuilt for 125.00 with new butterfly and bored by maxbore if the problem is related to the wall being worn or butterfly being worn which is very common
