Default truck stalls in reverse

im having a small problem right now, sometimes when in reverse the truck seems to bog down a bit and stalls out but starts right back up, it only has done it to me in reverse, it seems like maybe when under a slight load from backing up slowly or uphill, but when in drive everything works great, no hesitations either

now its done this to me a few times in my driveway, once at the car wash the other day, and again at school today, now i do believe it has a slight miss, but i plan on new distributer cap and rotor, already have new plugs and wires, could this have something to do with it?

Try to clean the air bypass and throttle body, when I bought my truck it stalled, cleaned the above, adjusted idle, and its fine now.
