Dont know what else to do....

I have a 1992 jeep wrangler and its dying out on me constantly. I have replaced the alternator, wires, distributor, rotor, starter, im getting fuel into the lines(checked the release valve), my pump comes on before i start it. I dont know if it is a vacum leak or a fuse or something simple. I could really use some help.

+1 to those...

Does it die after a certain amount of time? 1 minute? etc... (something is getting to hot?)

Or, does is sputter like heck around turns??? (water in the fuel?)

or, always spits and sputters randomly no matter what? (water in fuel or fouled spark plugs) Or, water in the fuel causing the spark plugs to foul.

It used to stall out every now and then driving down the road either going 65 or 10mph but since then its now doing it started doing it constantly. It will die out after a few seconds of driving it like 50 ft and then it wont turn back on untill i let it sit for a little while then it will instantly turn on. Ive replaced the plugs and it does turn on. If i let it idle for about 10 min it will die. There is no sputtering or anything its like its getting choked out and just looses power. Im thinking a sensor or a ground but im at a dead end. Not my fuel pump or injector or filter. I checked all electrical and fuel possibilities. Thanks guy for all the responses, Really.
