Intake manifold gaskets

First I must say I am new to this forums and kinda new to jeeps in general.
I have a 1996 Grand Cherokee Limited, it has the 5.2 in it. After doing a little research i have come to the conclusion the the gasket on the bottom of the intake manifold is bad. can anybody give me some pointers on this? the main question I have is does this jeep have a "standard" distributor in it? when doing the gaskets do you have to pull the distributor out (if the answer to question one is yes). If anyone has a step by step it would be great. Thanks in advance guys

Do you mean the plenum gasket? You don't need to mess with the distributor when taking off the intake. Take a look through here.

Yep, no need to pull the distributor to do the intake manifold. It's a Chrysler, not a Chevy.

His: '00 WJ 4.7 Limited- Some stuff

Hers: '03 WJ 4.7 Laredo- Some more stuff
