Sounds like time for a tune up. Try plugs and wires and cleaning the carb out. If that doesn't work, I would reset your timing which should fix it.

85' CJ7 Laredo, 383 GM, Turbo 350, NP 203. SOA, 2" frame lift, 34" TSL swampers, Dana 30 open, AMC 20 w/ detroit locker, 4:10's, 1 Piece Mosers, 35" boggers to abuse when needed.

Also adjust your idle speed to lower than 900 RPM. If you can't do it then as Bard sugested you need a tuneup.

I couldn't get my jeep to idle lower than 950 RPM until I improved the ignition system with a TFI upgrade. Then I can lower the RPM to 550 RPM but generally I leave it between 650-750 RPM.

Decarb it with Seafoam.
You might have carbon deposits built up in the combustion chamber.
Causing hotspots that continue to glow and thus ignite latent fuel after ignition is turned off.
Also known as dieseling.
