Default 89 2.3 jumps, and sputters

after i replaced all my gaskets, and got the motor back in the truck, it doesnt like to accelerate. 4th and 5th gear are mostly useless now, and whenever i give it gas the truck jerks forward, as if i'm stomping on and off the gas. there's a massive loss of power, and i have to downshift a gear lower than usual for hills. (say usually i could take a hill in 4th, now i have to in 3rd or maybe even second).

anyone have any ideas?

replaced plugs, wires, and fuel filter.

ran seafoam through fuel tank.

bonestock 89 ranger xlt 2.3l 5spd 2wd. Ridin high (stock), handles like crap, slower than hell, and i love it.
