Need help fast!!!

After some wheeling last night (snow, mud and ice) my jeep is losing power about every 5 seconds or so. When idling, it will stay at 800 RPM and then go almost down to a stall and go back up again. It does the same thing while driving. I'm in buffalo NY and I need to drive this back to Washington DC tomorrow. Please email me if you can help me. I'll be under the jeep and be checking my email periodically. Thanks!!

Check your distibutor cap, wires,anything that might have gotten wet. Could be you need to take your intke tube off and spray some carb and choke cleaner in your throttlebody and around it . but it sounds electrical to me. just a thought
