Angry 95 just stops running

Hey I'm new to this so bare with me Please! Have a 95 YJ 4.0 auto. My only major problem is that the engine will just shut down. If I wait a couple minutes it will restart. Seems to happen most when the tank is down to about 1/3 full. Have replaced the shutdown and fuel pump relays. Otherwise runs great. Help.

Jeep fuel gauges are know for being off a little. My suggestion is dont let it get that low or since you have been running it that low here's a solution. All the crap that builds up in the tank over time is probably getting stuck in the filter on the bottom of the sending unit. Change out the fuel pump/sending unit and flush out your tank with mild detergent and see if it helps.

Thanks. This is definitely electrical. The sending unit is a good thought. Doesn't cough or sputter. Just stops running... dead. Wait a couple minutes. Turn the key on listen for the relay to reset and then turn to start. Bingo, starts right up. I purposely let the tank run below 1/2. Then... still had 6.9 gals out of 20 last time. Filters etc. seem to be running clean.
