jeep starts and dies in the morning

After my jeep sits for several hours or over night, Ill go to start it, and it will start and die before it gets all the way to idle. What do you think would cause this. It starts after, but from time to time it will idle real low and die. Its a 98 TJ 4.0 Auto

I would start with checking the fuel pressure. Actually I'd start with looking carefully for vacuum leaks since that's free.
