Check fuel pressure. Sputtering often means low fuel into cylinders.

Your battery's voltage is quite possibly low...it should test at 12.6 resting voltage (not running). These WJ PCM's demand top rate voltage...if it's even on a low side they'll do what yours is doing --engine will crank...but when started will just sputter out. If you have access to another battery from other vehicle with close cranking amp rating give it a shot...don't shut hood while testing this as WJ's have very little clearance between battery and hood (in case test battery is on "tall side")
Post back follow up results..

While in there worth cleaning the battery connectors, ground from battery on the engine side, and engine to firewall. This will just know you're getting a good connection and isn't part of the problem.

Thanks for your tip guys.I will try them out.I noticed one more thing though.The NGK spark plugs (#ZFR5N) currently fitted have a gap of 0.90 as opposed to the recommended Champion spark plugs (#RC12ECC- copper plus) which has a gap of 0.36.Could this be contributing to the problem?

Woah! Definitely re-gap them!

CLEANING AND GAPPING (Except HO engines)
The plugs may be cleaned using commercially available spark plug cleaning equipment. After cleaning, file center electrode flat with a small point file or jewelers file before adjusting gap. The Gap specification is 0.035 for the 4.0L engine, and 0.040 for the 4.7L engine.
CAUTION: Never use a motorized wire wheel brush to clean spark plugs. Metallic deposits will remain on spark plug insulator and will cause plug misfire.
