Without testing, best guess is to check the crank sensor (check cold and hot, when problem is happening) This sensor is a magnetic coil pickup and may be shorting when hot) Pickup is on left side of bellhousing and can be tested for output with a digital ohmeter. I don't have the specs but they are easy to find in nearly every repair manual. I think its 200 (+) (-) 75ohms.Anything outside of that is suspect. The sensor itself is a pain in the **** to get to.... To replace, I've gone as far as cutting slots into the ears, so the screws can be left in bellhousing and the sensor slides under them, Anyhow, it takes patience, especially working on the ground.

Does the jeep shut off when hot and restart after awhile? This could be a crank sensor problem.
