Try this:

Courtesy of TJWalker:
--------------------------------------------------------------------
The Idle Air Control (IAC) is mounted on the back of the throttle body. (front for 87-90) The valve controls the idle speed of the engine by controlling the amount of air flowing through the air control passage. It consists of a stepper motor that moves a pintle shaped plunger in and out of the air control passage. When the valve plunger is moved in, the air control passage flows more air which raises the idle speed. When the valve plunger is moved out, the air control passage flows less air which lowers the idle speed. Over time and miles, the IAC can get carboned up which can have an adverse affect on idle quality. Cleaning the IAC may restore proper function and is an easy procedure to perform and good preventive maintenance so it is never a bad idea.

CLEANING THE JEEP 4.0 IDLE AIR CONTROL

Remove the air filter cover, associated hoses and the rubber boot that goes from the air filter cover to the throttle body. Remove the IAC with a torx driver (2 bolts; one can be kind of hard to get to)

“Gently” wiggle out the IAC from the throttle body. Gasket on the IAC can be re-used if it is not damaged

Clean the IAC with a spray can of throttle body cleaner; inexpensive and available at any place that sells auto parts. Throttle body cleaner is recommended rather than carburetor cleaner as it is less harsh, safe for throttle body coatings and is best for this task. Use cleaner, a rag and a toothbrush and or Q-Tips. Be gentle; don’t twist or pull on the pintle that protrudes from the IAC as it is fragile and you could damage it.

Thoroughly spray clean and flush where the IAC seats in the throttle body with the same spray cleaner

It is also a good idea to clean the entire throttle body itself, the butterfly valve inside of the throttle body and all associated linkage as long as you have things disassembled



An FYI: Titling threads HELP almost always guarantees folks who could probably help you, will skip over the thread. counter productive way to title a thread. Fact.....

After you do all the stuff TJWalker recommends, if the problem continues, have the battery and alternator tested.

.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

I tried all that even replaced the iacv after cleaning didn't work. New battery and alternator. I said screw it and bought a new head gasket set and cylinder head bolts. Last thing I can think if is maybe the head gasket cracked intern causing it to misfire. If this dot work idk. Could bad fuel injectors cause these symptoms?

Rather than opening the hood and throwing random new parts at an undiagnosed problem, you should do some research on the Interwebs and some testing/inspecting on your Cherokee.

Are ALL the tune-up parts fresh, including the coil ? Have you tested the fuel pressure ? Have you tested the fuel injectors ? Have you tested the O2 sensors and the Coolant Temperature Sensor ? If you think the head or head gasket is the cause, have you tested for failure ?

That seems awfully drastic but go for it if you really enjoy replacing head gaskets just for giggles... There are a lot of things to be ruled out and a head gasket is definitely not one of them. Any engine codes?
