Went wheeling today. Jeep stalled wont start

So I went wheeling today. Nothing major. Didn't even get covered with mud. Ran fine all the way home and than went to go catch a movie and it just stalled like I was out of gas and won't start. Could this be a fuel pump ?

Check the valve on the fuel rail for any pressure.

If you could expand on that I'm not the most mechanically fit person.

There is a silver rail that should have a grey plastic cap that unscrews. Take it off and there is a valve just like the valve in your tires. Press it in and see if you get any gas to come out. If you do not then you are not getting gas to the injectors. If you do get gas out of there it may not be enough pressure and you really need someone with a pressure gauge to know if you get enough pressure. Are you aware of the ignition key sequence to get codes? That will help you out immensely if your Jeep can do it as not all Jeeps can pull codes.

Installed new fuel pump. When dropping gas tank we founds bits and pieces of screws and other crazy stuff. She runs great again though !
