i couldnt find that part at rock auto but did find at avanced auto parts and auto zone for around a hundred bucks. do you think buying and replacing this sensor would fix the codes my jeep gave me after the key dance or would i need to do something more?

I can find a crankshaft position sensor on both rock auto and auto zone for about $20 I either have the wrong jeep I'm looking up or one of us is searching for the wrong part. It's late so I put nothing past my tires brain at this point LOL

It should solve the problem and for $22 it's well worth the effort. Even if it didn't you're not out any serious cash. But the only code you have that explains the misfires is the crank sensor so it makes sense to change it. That's what I would do if it was my jeep anyway. If that didn't work I would then test all the wires leading to that sensor and go from there.

No big deal bro just before you start pull the negative battery cable then turn the key to the on position while your changing the sensor this should be enough to dump your codes and all your computer memory as well. The jeep might ride different while it learns stuff again but the codes will be gone anyway.
