Stuttering problems

I am new to the jeep world and am having some problems.
I have a 80 cj5 with the 6 cyl and it is running bad.
It seems to do fine for a while and even at idle but after 10 minutes it begins to run rich and backfire and sometimes die while I am driving. I have checked the carb completly several times. I have even installed a new fuel pump. When it dies, I have taken the top off the carb and found an empty bowl. could it be vapor lock and if so what is the solution? I am at the end of my patience and am considering a weber carb to see if it will fix the problem. Any ideas will be helpful.
Thanks, Bill
