Wink 1993 Jeep YJ wont run right

So i own a 1993 jeep yj 2.4liter base model. It died in the middle of the road a while ago and i found out the distributor was bad so i replaced it along with plugs, wires, cap, rotor, ignition coil. Got the engine to start and idles pretty good(better than before) but i took for a test drive and it doesnt get any power when i accelerate and it doesnt start everytime. I know its not fuel or the ecu. this is my everyday driver and need answers ASAP. Thanks.
