What is the fuel pressure? We need that specs.

Jeeps are common for failing crank sensors that stop spark. If it is bad, it may have set a code.

No, it is a fuel delivery issue. You may have fuel but not enough pressure. Looks more like the fuel pump.

Make sure you clean out the tank of all debris.
