Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I would take a close look at secondary ignition. If the problem happens under load (acceleration) I would bet the wires are leaking/bad or the cap/rotor has some carbon tracking. Try spraying down the wires/coil with soapy water and looking for any arcing. Also take a peak inside the distributor cap. you'll be looking for a build up of debris/moisture or carbon tracking which look like black lightning bolts.
