I am having a little issue with my 6cyl 1987, when I slowly give it gas it reacts just fine but if I get on in quick it spudders (hesitates) for a second and then takes off. I recently replaced the carb but had the same issue with the old one. It is a stock carter carb on it that has been pressure tested and idles well at 700 rpm's, so I don't believe it's a mixture problem.
Anyone have any suggestions on what I can do?

sounds to me like it's the accelerator pump..
could also be one of the check balls in the carb not in the proper position.
I just rebuilt a carb today from an '89 that was having the same problem (well, one of the handfull of problems was a stumble when you hit the gas). turned out to be the accelerator pump seal was messed up and one of the check balls was improperly seated.
also check the carb bowls for water. don't know if that will cause it, but this one had about 1/8" of water in the bottom.
Did you ever figure out what was doing this? I am having the Exact same problem.
I had a similar problem with a fuel pump/fuel filter. A replacement solved the problem and gave me way more go too. Of course I'm running FI'ed not Carbed sooo it might be be different depending on your setup.
I don't think it's normal. If the accelerator is slowly pressed, it is fine. But if you get on it it will sputter, sometimes backfire and then stall. Not good for wheeling. Last night I cleaned idle pickup tubes and it still does it after. No vacuum leaks.
Anyone replaced or adjusted the throttle position sensor or accelerator pump? I don't even know where the TPS is...
