Mine did the same thing. I ended up having to change the fuel injector and its been fine for the past year now.

I just went through this with cylinder 1. Swap the injector with another cylinder. Make sure you don't **** up the rubber seals. If you're lucky you won't be paying $8k to have the stealership put a long block in like I am.

Test the injector with a ohmmeter. If reading is 12 ohm (+/-), injector is good. Report back.

Been there, done that. Mine on the WJ started in #4. After I put a new injector in #4, then #8 started. I took the fuel rail off again and did #8 and #2 for good measure while I was in there. That was five years ago. I have not had a misfire since then.
