Change your Coolant Temperature Sensor. This will fix it! I've seen a few of these. It is failing intermittently and telling the engine it's at -127 degrees Centigrade. The engine management responds by enriching the mixture dramatically to the extent that a hot engine will not start or idle. You can probably smell the fuel at the tailpipe when you can't start it.

generally your problem can be traced to a faulty anti-drainback valve in the fuel pump. After sitting for an extended time fuel must be re-filled and pressurized before engine will start. Second primary cause is a leaking fuel injector which does the exact same thing from the other end of the system but, this is also accompanied by a puff of smoke after starting.
Other causes can be low comrression from engine wear, or, a weak ignition coil but these are far less common.

I had the same problem with my 2000 le sabre custom. It would die in the middle of the interstate. I could throw it into neutral and it would restart and keep on going or I'd have to let it sit for about 5 minutes and it would usually start. There is no code, Dealer said to bring it in when it's happening. Yeah, right..if it's drivable..it's not happening. Replaced the fuel pump twice, the camshaft and crankshaft sensors, but still happened randomly. I had to stop driving the car because it was unsafe.

Have you tried to use the lowest thermostat - okay if you live in a place that you don't get real cold?
With all the problems you have had, I would take the vehicle to the best diagnostic computer in your area and see what it tells me.
I have a 1995 Grand Cherokee and still have original radio, relay, harness and compressor. I just clush the radiator and change antifreeze every two years, and change thermostats during flush.
