Stalls when heats up

I'm probably not posting this in the right area but hoping that someone (anyone) here has had this issue and can please HELP!!! I just recently put over $2500 in work into my Jeep so don't have a lot to fix it's newest and latest problem. So here goes....

Up until two weeks ago my Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo was running great. Purchased the same gas as always. All of a sudden whenever it gets up to "normal" running temperature; about 210, it will die and not start again for approximately 10-15 minutes. We have checked the fuel pressure and that is fine. Engine just quits even with the appropriate fuel pressure so we know it is probably something electrical but what?!?! I can't afford the $100 an hour labor that a shop will charge just to diagnose it.

Does anyone have any ideas?????

First idea is the ignition control module, they are usually the most susceptible to thermal failure.
