1990 wrangler ignition problems

My 1990 Jeep Wrangler 6 cylinder loses ignition at completely random times. Some times it will start immediately, some times it may be an hour or so before it will start. The engine turns over but there is no fire to the spark plugs. I've replaced the coil and distributor but the problem was not affected. Any suggestions? HELP, I wanna ride!

Yep, thought the same. Removed it and had it tested and it checks out ok.
