backfiring

JUst last week my jeep started bacfiring, it mainly does it in 5th gear but also in 4th. The only thing is it does it when I have my foot steady on the gas and I am not letting off. I have an 88 jeep wrangler, and any ideas would be great.

Re: backfiring

nope, just used the timing light and the timing is good. This only occurs every now and then though. Could it be too much fuel that is going into the exhaust, or a lack of fuel.
