My guess is rusty fuel tank. My dad's crx would die when going up a hill. Never down, never left or right, only up. Also check all the ground wires.

So dies when he's moving and turning left, but not idling and turning left?

Those era Jeeps (and well, into the mid 00s too) suffer from bad grounds. Wouldn't be bad to clean up the grounds. If it's a 4.0, the ground strap from the head to the firewall very commonly corrodes and causes strange issues.

Yea it's the 4.0. My little bro is gonna go look at it again I'll update you guys if the ground wires were causing it or not. Thanks for the suggestions and help!

Wrap apiece of wire around the antenna and coil wire or plug wire and turn the radio on to am. You will hear the spark plugs firing on the radio as a static noise that changes when you change the rpm.
If its dying due to loss of spark the noisewill go away when it dies.

If not then find out if it the fuel pump is in the tank and that it is safely secured in its proper location.

In neither of these then the above advice isgood so far.

regards
