Engine hesitation, CJ-8

I have a '47 CJ2-A, but since I've gotten good help here before, I have a question about my other Jeep. I have an '82 CJ-8 with the 151 Iron Duke engine. It recently started 'hesitating' at high-speed (50-55 MPH) in 4th gear. It's somewhat intermittant. It's like a 'bucking' sensation, and if I back off on the throttle a bit, it stops. It seems a bit worse up-hill under strain, and a bit less down-hill or flat. Anyone have any ideas? Maybe vacuum lines? Thanks.
