Jeep engine fails then wont start usually after driving for about 20 mins. It cranks very well but no ignition.
several times it cut out and cut right back in while driving.

Welcome to the forum. When the vehicle refuses to restart, have a helper crank it, while you check for spark at the plugs. If no spark, check for primary voltage at the coil and injectors, engine cranking. If nothing, check the voltage and ground circuits at the asd relay. My first thought was a crank or cam sensor issue, but, you need to do some testing.
