back-firing thru the intake is normally a sign of timing out of wack.......

I have seen the Distributor gears wear thin causing pops and misses.

Ign timing for the 4.0 is none adjustable.....
Here is what i normally do for a condition like yours

1. check plugs/wires/cap/rotor.
2.Check fuel pressure.
3.for removal of the Dist(if you decide to pull it) you need to mark the base of dist and the block so it goes in exactly like it came out...then next mark the rotor point to the side of the dist. to insure it is pointing in the right spot. remove dist hold down/wires then pull it out....

that sounds easy enough and i got a buddy that went to UTI so i think if i eff it up he could fix it. distributers are cheap enough i might just go ahead and do that, what should my fuel psi be at? what do i need to check that?

Being that you have a 95 and earlier you should have a schrader valve on your fuel rail....kinda looks like a big valve stem....should have a cap on it. that is where your gonna hook up a fuel pressure guage(0-60psi). and since you have a vacuum asst regulator you should see 31 with line on and 39psi with it off.
