Hesitation again! What gives????

Ok ive been dealing with this since i bought the Jeep.

It ONLY happens when it is chilly out or right when I start up and drive after it sits. When I lighty accelerate and just shifts out of first gear into second it kinda jerks a bit and it will bog out and rpm's will fall down. Even when I punch it down after it shifts it just sits at those rpm's for a bit then will finally accelerate.

It is like the opposite of tranny slippage!!!!

Here is a list of what I have replaced/added within the past 6 months or so:

Mopar Cap and Rotor
Mopar TPS
Champion spark plugs

Flowmaster muffler, Removed Cat. (I know, shouldnt have)
Mopar MSD Ignition 6AL
Blaster SS Coil

P.S. This is a 97 ZJ Limited with the 5.2L V8 (Also it is lifted 2 inches but that would have nothing to do with this)
