Truck acts like its loosing all power and backfires

How's the inside of the cap and rotor ? It could be cross-firing inside the cap.
You could also have a major vac leak somewhere and the engine is starving for fuel.

When we fist start up it backfires though the carb and when we get on down the road it clears up and when it gets hot it comes back and i have a 96 suburban ss vortec 454 4x4

The temperature sensor needs to be replaced it is telling the computer to send mtoo much fuel to the injectors and this will cause backfiring. When it warms up it should run fine.
