Distributor wiring firing order

Hello guys and gals, New guy here just bought a 1997 Jeep Wrangler w/ the 5 speed and 2.5l 4 cyl. Looking for a lil help. I did a quick search on the forum for this issue, but couldn't find anything.

Which order does the cylinder wires run to the distributor cap? TIA

firing order is 1342 with #1 being the front cyl. and #4 being the rear cyl. and the distributor is wired such that the #2 position on the cap is the closest one to the block. And the dist. turns clockwise. So if you bend over the pass. side fender and look at the dist from ontop , the #2 position on the dist. is at the 1 oclock position. Then wire it clockwise 1342.

Hope this is not to confusing.
