Any check engine lights on before it shuts off? It could be many different things: fuel pump, fuel filter, fuel pressure regulator, electrical short, ecm, crank sensor, throttle position sensor, cam sensor (if it has one) ect. Hopefully we can point you in the right direction. Let us know what you find

I would start with checking the wires yo the furl pump. A new fuel filter and a tune up couldn't hurt. It could also be a fuel pump or fuel pressure regulator.

It's your crank shaft positioning sensor, I had the same problem. If it was related to your fuel pump it would put, put, put out, but if your jeep just turns off while your driving have that sensor switched out. If I remember correctly it's about $50 and $50 for installation.
