Exclamation Help 99 TJ Shutting off while driving

Hey guys i got one for ya thats been twisting my brainall week in the shop, 99 tj it shuts off while im driving sometimes it was jus shut off then turn right back on, other times it wont come back on and ill have to yank it off the side of the road and start it back up, and today after it shut off on me everytime i would hit the throttle it would just sputter and not really go any where til i put it in park and let it idle a little bit, ive replaced the plugs, cap and rotor, wires were pretty much new so i didint worry about them, everyone keeps telling me fuel filter but there listed not sercvicable every where i look so im guessig there in the pump, so possibly a pump? or the relay on the pump? i dont know guys any suggestions are worth a shot so please help me out

How many miles?
I can say from personal experience that when Jeep says to replace the fuel pump (it and the filter are in tank) at 100,000 miles to do it!!!!!!!! I went 100,010 miles and it quit on me. Had I taken the time to do it the repair would only have cost me about $50 and 2 or 3 hours. I did not and with towing was $700 at the stealership.
Try that first. It could even be as simple as a bad ground wire at the pump. To make it easy I would cut a door in the rear floor of the jeep to change it without having to drop the skid and tank.

My idea of help from the man above is a sniper on the roof.
