Have the battery checked where you bought it. If they say it is OK,put it back in the jeep,have the ignition OFF, connect the positive post only to it's clamp, connect a 12 volt test light the negative cable clamp, connect the other end of the test light to the negative post of the battery. If the test light lights up, something is drawing power from the battery. If you can't find the source of the draw, you can disconnect the negative post when the car is not going to be used overnight, so the battery wont be drawn down. Or you can put a charger on it overnight.

Get a test light,Disconnect one cable from battery and hook the lead to batt. post and other end to cable. If light is bright, you have an excessive draw. Pull fuses one at a time untill light goes dim.(stick fuses back in as you go) A little draw is normal, clock and radio memory.
