i would say fallow the wire and keep checkin it see if you can find a short. jeep is natorious for wireing problems i use to own one. that or check your fuel pump. if its crankin your gettin power. kinda sounds like a fuel problem.

ya just like arron said jeeps are known for that or bad grounds and also like he said fuel pump,fuel filter,relays and if you still have the carberator on it you may need to get your carb rebuilt i had a simular problem with my weber carb it would start then stop or if it did stay running it ran rough so i had to get mine rebuilt you may have a stuck float

do you have power to the coil? might be as simple as a fuse
