running problem

Hey guys I got a problem Im hoping one of you guys may be able to help with. While driving my jeep (97 tj 2.5L), after a while my engine will seemingly cut out then run again cut out then run again and then give off a bit of a back fire. It kind of the like the feeling of running out of gas (Im not out of gas). It only does it sometimes; Im really not sure what it is.
any info would be greatly appreciated
thanks guys

Hm, things I would look at:

Fuel filter
Clogged injector
Throttle position sensor
