Fine, do you have spark all the way to the plugs? What is the fuel pressure must be AT LEAST 42 PSI as soon as you turn on the ignition
You didn't mention the ignition module
Check the engine cranking Vacuum it needs to be at least 2" cranking if not the catalytic converters can be so plugged the engine can't start YES IT IS VERY POSSIBLE HAPPENS ALL THE TIME
The other reason you may not have 2" of cranking vacuum would be a jumped timing chain also check the compression look for any low cylinders add some ennginen oil to those low cylinders and if they do not come way up right away you have valve problems.
If this information is helpful please give me a fixya! Rating and if you need more help contact me

97 Grand Cherokee larado dies when you slow down or are stopped. Some bucking/stalling when driving it. We have replaced trottle sensor and igination coil; change air filter; but we did just install a new...

The ac compressor does put an additional load on the engine.
Any minor problem with performance can be amplified with the ac on.
I would check fuel pressure and look at the idle air control valve.
Also check the computer for trouble codes.
Both 6 and 8 cyl engines use a cap rotor and wires arrangement, so it wouldn't hurt to make sure those components as well as the spark plugs are in good working order.
The bucking on the road and stalling at stops could be two different issues.

Three things to try:

1) replace ignition switch located in column
2) replace ignition control module on firewall
3) if those don't work, check the pick up coil in the distributor

check the 2 wire connector to the ignition module. It may come loose causing intermittent ignition shutdown. replace and tie down connector to prevent vibration.
