Jeeper!! I'm a newb and had the exact same problem. My crank sensor failed one day ( luckily in the drive way) and It needed to be replaced. After that, the jeep would stall after coming of a highway, or coming to a stop. So far I replaced the sparkplug wires, coil wires, distributor cap and rotor, and it hasn't stalled since. Check your wires at the cap, 2 of mine we strangishly coroded inside, the rest were cleam. Check it out, if it looks the same, give it a shot and tell me if this solves your problem as I almost bought another crank sensor to install.

Try to take the throttle body off and clean the Idle air control area (change that if you havent already) Use throttle body cleaner not Carb cleaner.

Good luck

I agree with swamp boy...

My ZJ did this for a month till I bought and used $3 worth of throttle body spray, I just follwed the directions on the can, and its never happened since.
