    I have the same Jeep. I replaced the fuel pump and filter. It still happening. I believe that there is phantom electrical problem. Because it happens to me. I will be driving along and then all of sudden it shuts off. Sometimes I can catch it while others it seems like I am flooding it.

The fuel pump is located in the gas tank and the filter is right in front of the tank on the inside of the frame. I have never worked on that particular throttle body, but if it has a throttle position sensor, that could be what your problem is.

This has happened all of a sudden?
It is sounding like it is starving for fuel...

First we will check for bad fuel. A GOOD Gasline Antifreeze can get the impurities and water out of the Gas. Get a bottle and pour the whole thing in the gas tank, bounce the car around to mix it with the fuel. Start it and let it run for a little while so see if it smooths out. If does not help then look at replacing the fuel filter as it may be clogged.
