Default 3.0 Idles rough accelerates great

Hi, all, I usually come here to seek help and look for inspiration.
My problem is this.
I have a 99 ranger 4x4 3.0 ffv. it through me a code telling me that my bank 1 was lean so changed that o2 sensor things got a little better, what is does now is starts good,sets at idle rough,,,as soon as I accelerate it is right there blastin done the road, if you hold a steady speed for awhile it is like it is "stuffed up" feels like you turn the key off with it in gear, when you let off the gas pedal it clears up and off you go, checked for vacum leaks et cetera, really need some help.

Thanks

ps, it is not giving any codes with this or activating cel

Mine does the same thing I have an 03 3.0 2wd mine idles rough but when I unplig the maf it smooths out. The stuffed up feeling your talking about at steady speeds i also get. I think its because when your cruising the overdrive is on and when you let off the gas and then step on it it turns off (this is just a theory of mine) but for the idle I would check the maf only reason I haven't changed mine is because I have no codes.
