You definitely have a float/sender issue. this is going to require some facts about your jeep and some research. jeep put different sending units and instrument gauges in same year vehicles so find out what capacity tank you have. also test the operation of the gauge and sender before re-installing the tank

1987 jeep wrangle will not start or run

Uncouple the fuel line coming from the pump at the carburetor, place a clean can under the line, and have someone operate the starter--you should have fuel shoot from the line in spurts as the engine turns. If it does, then the entry port on the carburetor is plugged. Remove the float assembly and pull out the float needle valve. Hook the fuel line back to the carburetor and try the starter again, there should be fuel pumping into the float bowl. If not, check to see if there is a filter on the fuel inlet path that may be plugged. If no filter, remove the float needle seat to see if something is blocking the fuel passage. If all else fails, use compressed air to blow backwards through the needle seat (remove the fuel line again). Hope some of this helps!

Try a tank of supreme gas, plus a can of SEAFOAM in the gas tank.After running about a half of this tank out. Pull positive post off the battery for about 1-minute. This will reset computer, and it might clean up the fuel problems that you are having. If it keeps on, change the O2-sensor out and do the above steps again.

Weird Missfiring

This is an electrical problem. There is a harness that runs in back of the cylinder head. I've seen this harness get worn and rub against the head when hitting bumps. Check the harness also while the jeep is running try moving harnesses under the hood you might get lucky and find if any wire could be storting out to ground.
