1997 ZJ stalling out

so heres the deal 1997 zj with the 5.2. On the coldest of the past few (about 45 - 50 f) days the truck has died right after start. this has been a recurring problem ive been chasing for about a year now. ive replaced the idle air control motor and the throttle position sensor and ive also done a thorough cleaning of the throttle body but the problem still persists and its driving me insane.

But it will run if i give it gas after turning it on and after driving it a little bit it will stay running if i don't hop of the gas in 1st gear. after running for a bit it will stay running but will remain finicky.

So if you guys have any leads for me to chase it would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks again
