Make sure you do not have any water in your engine..

I would drain the oil as a start and make sure there is nothing foreign in there.

If it aint broke, fix it till it is.

try clean the inside of the distributor cap... it may have water on the inside.
Maybe you smashed the exhaust... check under the jeep
