Have you had the computer scanned for codes? Most parts stores will do it for free. Let me know what code they find. To me, it sounds like a weak pick-up coil in the distributor because of the fuel smell. Have you checked for leaks?

The 1988 Ramcharger was the last year without a computer and was carbureted.
