Jeep just stops running ?

My jeep will just turn off while sitting in traffic or even while driving? It starts right back up, but it dies like you turned the key off? All the gauges and radio stay on just the engine dies. Please help

Check rubber fuel lines for rot.
If they're fine. It's probably your crap ignition system.

mine did the same thing to me.it was bad connection where the wires go into the horse-shoe shaped plastic piece that gives power to the coil.

Perhaps ignition control box. Does it ever happen when cold?
