97 ram 5.9 misfire?

I have a 97 ram 1500 with the 5.9 gas burner. It has around 160k. I was pulling out of a gas station today, had to romp it pretty good to get out. Ran out fine. About a half mile down the road just cruising around 50-55, it felt like a bad misfire started. Jerking the truck with a light load. The harder I pushed the gas, the less jerking. And it occurs at idle and going. So it's constant. I've had the truck for close to a year and a half and haven't performed a tune up. Guy before me said he just did. What exactly does this sound like? It burns some oil some times and makes a popping sound from the exhaust. White smoke. Suspect the plenum gasket maybe. Not 100%.
