Of course you are. Try drying it up and restart. If it still doesn't start, take the air filter assembly sitting on thecarburetor . Open the carburetor. Inside it, is a float, that closes the fuel valve when the reservoir is full and open it, when the fuel goes down the level. This control the fuel flow into your engine. You can adjust this such that it is just parallel to the cover holding it. Be careful in removing the carburetor cover. This hold a small valve just above the float. Do not lost it. When everything is checked up. You can assemble the carburetor, and screw it back in place.
Put the air filter assembly back in place. Now, that
you are done, you can restart your car engine. Good
working, you can do it.

    Before putting the air filter assembly back in place, Let somebody
    start the Jeep, check the carburetor if you can see an atomize spray
    of gas in it as it is crank to start. You must have an atomize spray
    if it is to start. A solid spray will cause a fuel flooding. Solid spray
    indicates worn out injector nozzle in your carburetor. You must replace it to get it right. Go back to your Jeep and get this done.

I have a 99 jeep grand Cherokee Laredo it cranks but it wont start

Check for spark at plugs, fuel pressure key on/engine off, and last compression test. If no spark, check all fuses then ignition module/coil. If no fuel pressure, check fuses, relay and listen for pump noise for two seconds or so after key on. If low compression, check timing belt (if any).

Where is the gas regulator located on a 1996 jeep cherokee (2wd) ? Why is my jeep turning off and want start, until it sits for awhile; I have change the fuel filter and fuel pump?

You meant the fuel pressure regulator? It is located on the fuel rail and has vacuum attached to it. This is not the problem with your car tho. Check the ignition module, and the ignition coil.

Wont start 1996 jeep grand cherokee laredo inline six4.0 fuel inj

The first thing I would do since you think it was flooded is to replace the sparkplugs, sometimes if a spark plug has been washed out with gas you cannot get it completely dried out. After you replace sparkplugs try to start the engine. If the engine starts I would still recommend that you change your oil because of fuel saturation. If your engine fails to start I would suspect that you have a bad crankshaft position sensor as it is known to give problems. The crankshaft position sensor is located on the top of the transmission bell housing on the drivers side.

Back up a minute...Do you have spark from the coil wire? (juice from coil) If so, change or check rotor and cap (wires do not all go bad at same time so unless they are wet, likely at least good enough to start engine)

OK...I have a 93 diagram I have shows an ignition module next to coil...but there is none on mine, (4.0 engine)
Two items to check are crank sensor and cam sensor inside distributor. Test procedure can be found in just about any manual including haynes.
You will need a decent volt/ohm meter to do testing. You can also check codes by turning ignition switch on/off three times, leaving it on the third time. Check engine will flash code #'s (ex: one flash, pause two flashes= the number twelve.then followed by a longer pause then another set of flashes etc.)
