Jeep stalling at lights

As of late my jeep has been having problems where if the engine is warm it will stall out at lights. I just replaced the cap and rotor as well as wires and plug and the next thing im gonna do is either o2 sensor or fuel filter but does anyone have any other idea on whats causing this

it has good fuel in it and theirs no vaccum leak in it. Its hard for me to explain it since It don't happen to me all but everyone else who drives it.

does the YJ have an idle air control valve/screw? If so it may be clogged and needing cleaning.

sulfur smell could be either a bad cat or higher sulfur content in the most recent batch of gas when you filled up. If the cat is clogged, you'd get noticeable bogging down when trying to accelerate...possible issues stalling out. If the cat is monitored by a down-stream O2 sensor, it might trigger a CEL.
