Exhaust Clogged? Tramsmission problem?

I am having a problem with my '99 TJ Wrangler. When I start driving first thing in the morning, it runs GREAT. Whether I drive 10 miles or 150 miles, no problems at all. After I get out of the Jeep and let it sit for 30 minutes to a few hours, I start driving again it runs great at first. Once I get about a mile down the road and try to gain speed (usually from 30-40mph), it starts to hesitate and lose power. When I push the clutch in, it idles fine and I can rev up the engine it does fine. Once I try to ease off the clutch, it starts again and will do this for about 20-30 seconds, then runs fine again. It will be fine no matter how many miles I drive. It makes some loud popping noises some times too and then runs fine. It sounds like the pops come from the exhaust side of the Jeep. Almost like a back fire Anyone else ever have this issue?

It started to do it after I was wheelin through a lot of mud one day. The tailpipe coming from my muffler is loose and there is a hole where the pipe should be connected. The tail pipe is still there but there is about a 1/2 inch gap around it. Could mud/dirt have gotten in there and caused this issue? Any way I can test to see if the exhaust pipe is clogged or the cat converter?
