I have a 2002 4.0. For the past few days it has died a few time while driving and at idle. Really fun in the Atlanta heat and traffic. It has always started up either immediately or after a minute or two, until now.
I went to start it up to go to work this morning and nothing. It turned over just fine so I think it's a fuel issue. Any ideas on the problem would be great. Thanks.

Crank sensor, or fuel pump

theres a fuel rail along the intake with a cap on it that looks similar to the valve stem cap on tires. Take that off and push in the needle if gas sprays you have fuel pressure

another check for the pump is to have someone turn the key while you are at the gas tank. You should hear the pump prime

If both of those check I would put my money on the crank sensor
