4.0 engine stalling "HELP"

I have a 2005 4.0 liter wrangler that keeps stalling out. It does it at all different types of driving and all manner of things happen from nothing but stalling out and immediately restarting to stalling out with all gauges going dead as if it were shut off and taking several times to restart. I have had it worked on several different times with the first one being the crank shaft position sensor, replaced with no help, the second time the idle air control valve was the problem, replaced with no help. Now I am being told the computer is bad and needs to be replaced. The check engine light comes on some times and some times it dont, it has throwed all manner of codes I will not put more money into it till i have a answer. HELP HELP HELP
I love my jeep and its actually the 9th one I have owned, it a 05 Willys Edition. However I am really frustrated

It does make some sense. The pcm controls the gages and the power train. If it were a sensor your gages wouldn't go black and if it were a bad connection at a wire harness plug it would seem as though the jeep wouldn't want to start back up. Although I have seen that happen before where a wire makes just enough connection to supply juice and gets hot which causes it to lose contact. It only takes a few minutes to check and they are right down by your feet on the driver side kick panel.
