It runs well when dry. I have replaced: plugs, wires, distributor cap, air filter, fuel filter, etc. The truck misses/cuts in and out when driving when humid. During rapid acceleration it tends to do ok. Cruising a constant RPM-bad.

    Did you also replace the distributor rotor as well? This is important. If you did, then I would check your Ignition Coil. it may be arcing to ground when it is wet. Does your truck have a carb or is it Fuel Injected? ( 1990 was the last year )

    let me know and Good Luck!
