Any number of possible causes. A bit more detail could help narrow them down.

- The universe does not like you

- Sunspots

- Gremlins

- Your ex-significant other is sabotaging your Jeep

- Dead battery

- Out of gas

for the more serious possibilities, roughly what miles do you have?
Presumably this is a 4.0?

Does it crank fast but not fire?

Does it fire but not start as soon as you hear it fire?

Slow crank?

Fire multiple times but if it starts then cuts out and dies right away?


How long has it been since the MAP sensor, throttle body, CPS, O2 sensor, catalyst, etc. have been changed. Plugs, plug wires?
Fuel pressure? Fuel pressure sensor?

Got a cheap scanner or can borrow one from an Autozone [presuming you live in a country with Autozone] and see if it is throwing any error codes?

Good news is that apparently the Cherokees are stacking up in recycle lots in the USA enough that some real bargains on parts may be available.
