07 Jeep Limited 5.7 dies

I have an 07 Jeep limited with the 5.7 Hemi engine. I come to stops and it will just die like someone just turned the key off. It's happened several times. The common factor is that it's normally at idle or just coming to a stop when it happens. There is no bucking or gradual decline, it just stops dead and then I can start it right back up. I took it to a Jeep dealership and the got it to throw and they changed a shutoff relay. Got it home and it died in the drive. I have read it could possibly be a crankshaft position senor, any thoughts?? thanks in advance

Id replace the CPS like you stated. I had the same problem and replacing the sensor fixed it! Cheap and easy DIY.
