stalling @ stop


i'm a new used jeep owner. i've got a 2000 sahara automatic. I'm having an issue when I come to a stop if the car is in Drive, it tends to stall out. If I shift into neutral when I come to a stop I won't.

Anyone have any ideas of what may be my issue?

Help would be appreciated!

BTW, for the original poster, does your jeep have a RECON sticker? I may be moving back to Oahu, as this is where I am originally from, in the next few years and an wondering if my jeep will pass the RECON inspection.
