Cherokee No Start

Hi, I have a 2003 jeep grand Cherokee with the 4.0L. I have been having problems with it stalling very randomly (no warning before either). The anti-drain fuel valve is bad because I have to prime it twice before I can start it. Any who... my girlfriends sister was driving the car tonight and it stalled on her. She couldn't get it to start at all so I went to the jeep and I couldn't get it to start either, even priming it. The engine tries to turn over so the starter is good, the battery also reads 12.4 volts on the gauge before starting. Also, the tank was full of gas so its not out of gas. Any ideas on where I can start? I do all my own work... like to get my hands dirty so I want to fix it myself. Hopefully you all can help me out, willing to try anything.

Are you getting fuel to the rail?

Just checked the fuel rail and no fuel is coming out, even when priming the fuel pump. I did try starting it with starter fluid and it did start but I had to keep jumping on the gas to keep in running. Once I stopped jumping on the gas it would die though. So I am guessing clogged injectors, clogged fuel filter, bad fuel pump? Whats next? Thxs for all the replies and help in advanced!

Fuel to the rail won`t necessarily mean there`s something wrong with the injectors. Could be filter, could be pump. When you turn the key to on and pause, do you hear the pump prime? If so, would look at fuel filter as possible cause. If no, check fuse/relay for the pump first. If they're good, could be to do with harness to the pump, or the pump itself.
