You're lacking a lot of information in your post.

How long have you had the Jeep? What's been done since you've owned it?

The short answer is to service everything that has not been done since you've owned it.

Clean the throttle body and iac motor. Takes 5 minutes and will prevent you from chasing an idle problem down the road.
