The usual things are the cam and crank sensors, these both went on my old Jeep Grand Cherokee 4.7, you should also check and if needed clean the throttle body with throttle body cleaner, and check for Jeep specific codes just to make sure your not missing something.

Clean the mass airflow sensor as well.
