If you haven't had any luck yet, I suggest that you #1 replace any rubber fuel lines that are obviously bad or even questionable. CJ's had mechanical fuel pumps mounted on the side of the crank case which ran off the cam. This means that there is no pump in the tank and any fuel lines leading to that pump will be under a vacuum. If those rubber lines are wrong kind, old or almost kinked they WILL colapse under the vacuum and temporarily shut the fuel off. #2 However, in your case it sounds like the little screen filter on the pull tube inside the tank is probably stopped up completely with debre, that's why the motor dies and won't start again. If you drop the tank and remove the screen sock from the end of the metal tube that may solve one problem. If you do this though, I suggest that you put an inline filter somewhere before the pump.

Cars are like that. I think they like driving people crazy. I\'ve been driven crazy by my Sentra for three months now.
Has the fuel pressure been checked? I wonder if your fuel pressure regulator has failed (the diaphragm inside will rupture and suck extra gas in through the vacuum hose attached to the regulator-could be the cause of backfiring). Something to check, anyway.
