Question tj wont idle poss gas tank liner issues?

I know that mid to late 90s cherokees had a problem with the gas tank interior liners flaking off and clogging fuel pumps and filters. Has anyone heard of / dealt with this issue on their TJ? 98 tj sport boggs down at half throttle. runs good wide open. also idle fluctuates, usually around 1200-1800 rpm. brand new exhaust header back all OE. cap and rotor look good. gonna pull the plugs today and see what ithey have to say. new TPS and cleaned out tb when tps change. clean airbox and filter. fluids at correct levels and new. thanks for the expert opinions and suggestions:thumbsup: in advance
