It could be a bad battery terminal.

Clean the ground wire connection
Its gonna be on the frame or the engine block.
Not sure on the wrangler cause I haven't had to mess with mine and its not with me today.

If it resets itself without you messing with anything then its got to be a bad connection somewhere.

Just clean both ends of the battery cables and see what happens

I just replaced the terminals on my cables today for similar reasons. My negative battery terminal would snug up enough to not twist on the battery post, but when you rocked it, it was loose. Seems to have cured my problems so far.
