turns and dies

i have a 1990 4 cylinder all stock. At a half tank if i make a left turn it will sputter and die. if its between a half tank and 3/4 tank and i make a sharp left turn it will sputter but not always die. Any ideas on what might be causing this? new gas tank and the fuel lines are good. Also it has a new fuel pump.

I have the same issue in mine (89 - 2.5). I am of the opinion that the fuel pickup is broken off and up to high to P/U the gas. It only happens on hard left turns when under a half tank for me. I have also been told it's yet another "Jeep thing." Only way to really check is to drop the tank which I just haven't gotten around to yet.
