Popping sound when accelerating

whenever i accelerate heavily or even somewhat heavily there is a loud popping sound and the jeep jerks a little. im guessing its something to do with the tranny slipping. hopefully a small problem that can be fixed without having to swap out to a new tranny. if anyone has had this problem before any help would be appreciated. jeep worked fine then sat for around 3 months and started after it was driven again. thanks!
