ok what it sounds like is that the alt is causing a draw and there for either the computer is shutting it down out the ecu is bad and shutting down the charging side of the alt. there is also an auto shut down relay but if this goes off the whole jeep would shut down I believe. take the ALT down to a auto part store and have them do a draw test on it.
