Isn't there some vacuum line that runs off the power steering pump that could be affecting this?

My Honda Civic does the exact same thing, but only when I am turning right. For my car it is due to there being a small hole in the pick-up tube of the fuel pump so when the gas sloshes below the hole the pump sucks air and stalls the engine. I am not familiar with the fuel pump in my Jeep yet, but it might be possible to have a similar issue!?!? I just make sure that I fill the tank in my Honda before it gets down to the quarter tank mark and then I don't have issues.

Drive it like you stole it!!
