Did the dealer checked the fuel tank? There might be dirt and condensated water in there, that's clogging the fuel sump. Also you should check the fuel pump, the sump might be bended out of position and up the Ophir pass there are inclines that could easily take it out of the fuel if the tank isn't full.
But there's something else to check - the pass is very high, it peaks at 12,000 feet. At that altitude the oxygen in the air is at a seriously lower level than normal so the engine might have difficulties operating. If the air filter or the catalyst are partially clogged - but not enough to pose a problem at ground level - the jeep will choke there. Check them also.

    While you're there ask him to replace the fuel filter - if the tank is dirty imagine the condition of the filter.

88 wrangler stalling 5 speed 4 cyl

Was there any water in the tank? Has anyone changed the fuel filter? Has anyone checked the ceramic ballast resistor on the drivers fender near the master cylinder?
Has anyone checked the crank sensor output? Did anyone see if it will run if you spray carb cleaner into the throttle body after starting? Are there pulses present at injector? You need to verify these things to get some idea what is going on there.

yeah that definitely sounds like the ignition switch went out. Had almost the same thing happen, along with alot of transmission error codes. I replaced the ignition switch harness and she purred like a kitten.
