Question about 1985 Jeep Grand Wagoneer
Best bet is corroded or brittle wiring off ignition connector above ignition coil - it has stopped me on two different jeeps - they cost around 6 bucs and wires should be heat shrinked

Ok, its and old jeep, cranks but will not start.
carb fueled right? crank it wide open throttle to clean the flood
and block open the choke, if CARB has auto choke, if manual choke make sure its open. (push in knob... called choke)
fuses first. test them.
first check for spark in all cylinders.
if you have spark on all , then its flooded.
if no spark on one try a new spark plug and wire.
if all spark is dead , do the tuneup. now. all spark parts.
if spark is dead, check it at the coil, ? good there? or not.
that is a start.
if the carb is bad, we cant cover rebuilding it here.
stalls while driving has over 50 causes.
but bad spark or flooding tops list. (assumes engine is ok)

since its a 1997 your jeep has EFI, electronic fuel injection. The most probable reason for your troubles would be the injectors or a problem with the computer controling them, not allowing enough gas to be pushed into the cylinder causing stalling or lack of power, also too much gas iin the cylinder can lead to back firing and stalling. This would also explain the reason it takes so long to start back up some times, all the excess gas in the cylinder is flooding the motor and u have to wait till the gas disipates till the engine will turn over.
