Found crossed wires while doing minor tune up...

I decided to replace the spark plugs and wires in my jeep just because I didn't know when they were last done, and the jeep has 336,000 kms on it. I was doing each plug and wire one at a time, until I came to cylinder 6. I disconnected the wire at the plug, removed the plug, gapped and put the new one in and then went to run the new wire when I noticed it wouldn't reach the spot on the distributor the old one was connected to. For some reason cylinders 6 and 8 were swapped. But the engine doesn't seem to be running any different (better or worse) after switching them to the "proper" order.

Does this make any sense to anyone? I'm confused by it.

(long story short: found out cyls 6 & 8 were connected to the wrong spots but the jeep ran fine)
