Pull #1 plug see what it looks like, did this start before or after the work was done?

Vehicle had problem before changing plugs just was not as severe as it is now. Plug #1 had the normal signs of an old plug but nothing that showed any other problems.

Without actually looking at the truck, does it have a low speed misfire like a bad plug? If so confirm the #1 coil is working, switch it with another cyl see if the misfire code moves with it, also if it has a dead misfire and the coil and plug are good, a compression test is in order.
