got a 88 cherokee and its running rough and if u pull the back 2 plug wires off the distributer cap it dosnt change how the motor is running but if u pull the 2 front it just about kills the engine wondering what could possably be the issue because its also running really rich and no power what so ever any advice would be appreciated

Check the plugs.....also do a compression test....we had a shop truck run on only 6 out of 8 for a while, turned out to be bad plugs, it happens, could also be the wires.....lots of crap to check.
