1995 Grand Cherokee - Missfire problem

First off i want to say i have searched and searched the forums and cannot find a answer.

So i have a 1995 grand cherokee that has a major missfire issue. I just bought it with a new motor installed. 5.2L V8. The motor was installed 3 weeks ago, and ran fine at first. It has developed a missfire issue that i cannot figure out.

Things i have done are:

Ignition timing
new plugs
new wires
new ignition coil
new cap
new rotor
reset computer

Nothing has worked, and I am completly out of ideas. Does anyone have any more places to check?

Thanks.

Possibly some junk got loose in the fuel lines and is restricting the injectors? Is the miss a steady miss or random? Run some injector cleaner. (?)

It is steady at 1500rpm, and shakes the whole jeep at 2000rpms. Below and above those it runs fine.

Be sure your plug wires are run correctly. There is a TSB regarding routing.
