my 4.0 will not run right HELP!!!

I just bought a 1987 jeep Comanche 2WD 4.0 with 5speed
I am at a loss since when I test drove it she ran like a gusty 4.0 should loads of torque, now it is acting up
it was stalling and dying and the tachometer was jumping all over the place
so I did this so far
new
cap, rotor, wires, bosch platinum plugs, CPS, IAC, Fuel filter, all vacuum lines inspected and replaced as needed, Coil ,Ignition control module,
after all this a few hundred dollar's later she idles and revs only to around 2800rpm then dies out and falls on her face
also running very rich
I cant figure this out new TPS is on order
any other suggestion's , I am about to Craig's list her and walk away

unplug the Crank Position sensor and plug it back in and get one to replace it.
I would also suggest pulling it out and cleaning it off and might even try drilling
one of the holes out to a 3/8" so you can get it a little closer for better signal.

My 87 Renix occasionally won't start, when it happens, I just unplug mine and
plug it back in and its good for 2 to 4 months.

Click on the link in my signature. Do posts 1 through 5. Platinum plugs suck BTW. NGK all the way.
