Q: Loss of power

My truck is losing power when going up hills and pulling heavy trailers. It also idles rough and jumps in rpm at cold start in the mornings and acts like it wants to die, also when trying to pass a car I hit the gas and it went to 4000 rpm and the truck was bogging out and losing power. Recently just changed the fuel filter still having the same issues

My car has 257000 miles.
