I have a 2000 Jimmy 128k. I loose power & get a miss fire code under load. When I tow up a hill start feeling loss off power. Almost dies. Also happens cold when going up a hill. Changed the obvious (plugs, cap, rotor, also cam & crank sensors) and use only Delco parts

Have the fuel pressure checked. You could have a clogged fuel filter affecting the fuel supply resulting in loss of performance.

If the Malfunction Indicator Light is shoiwng, get a scan to cehck for trouble codes.

Basics have been covered so you need to go further into diagnostics.
Have you checked the fuel pressure and air filter?
Try cleaning the MAF.
