You have the plug leads on the wrong cylinders or you have buggered them taking them off.

Sounds like your misiring there champ.
I'd check all your leads, make sure they r in good condition and are on correctly, did u gap the plugs b4 u put them in?
You may have a dodge coil pack, ignition module may be gone.

R u getting any error light on the dash?

Edit: Dammit u all beat me. . . .

look at the coil numbers... each number is the same cylinder number ..... each coil goes to two cyliners .... but mare sure you get the numbers right ... coil number 3 goes to cylinder 3...

You have either got a bad set of plugs ( this happens more often than you think) Damaged leads leads wich happen when it is hard to get the leads off because they get stuck on, or you have the leads on the wrong way
