I just bought another XJ, (98 4.0 manual) and the last two times I've taken it off road, it's cut out on me while it was idling (oddly enought both times it happened extremely close to the same spot). I'll try starting the engine but it just won't ignite. after about 15 min it'll start again. the battery, Spark plugs, and distributor seem to be fine, no moisture or corrorsion. It's only ever happened while I'm off-roading. any help/suggestions would be awesome. thanks!

Replace it. Buy 2, keep one as a spare. It's located on the bellhousing, driverside, near the top. Held in with bolts that use a 10mm wrench. If you have enough extentions you can get it from the bottom, or wiggle your hands in from the top. Cover your fenders and curse, 'cause it's a PITA!!!!
Oh yeah, make sure the wires DO NOT contact the exhaust. Check that first, you might luck out and have a pin hole in the insulation thats grounding it out.
