Injectors could be dirty or maybe try a few pumps before you try to start or turn key on until it pressurizes the lines

Mine: 1987 YJ 4.2 5spd soft top
98% of people when they are about to go into the ditch say "oh shit!" The other 2% are Minnesotans and when we are about to go into a ditch we say "Hold my beer and watch this shit!"
