Cuts out

I have a 95 7.3 5 speed 4x4. Driving down the road the ending will "cut out" but still run. Be doing 65 mile a hr at like 1600 rpm and will drop say 400 rmp than jump back to 1600 with out even dropping the rpm gauge. Another thing it does is act like it shifting real hard from 3rd to 4th in a automatic transmission while cruising down highway. The check engine light comes on and off while doing this. Haven't got checked yet cuz only did it once or twice, now does a lot so will text this week.
If you let foot off throttle peddle it stops "acting up" for a lil bit but comes right back.

I changed cps, valve cover gaskets LOOK good condition, good fuel in truck,

At 1700-2000 rpm sometimes feels like ur tapping the peddle and getting little burst if power..

Any ideas what to test or inspect or change out?
