1991 yj stalling problem

So my yj has stalled out a few times over the past few months and usually I am out of gas.. My gauge doesn't work correctly. But this time I have a full tank and it is stalling when idling and after trying to start it multiple times it won't even start.
People are saying it could be a sensor, fuel pump, fuel filter. Any way to identify which it is? Or have any other suggestions ?

If you've run the tank dry several times at this point, you probably took a lot of sediment from the bottom of the tank into your system. Check the filters first

x-2 on the filter, also while off and with the fuel line in a container, have someone turn the key on and see if the pump is working, you might have clogged the screen at the pump as well.
