Most likely, there is a carbon restriction in the throttle body, an air induction cleaning using a product like BG Chemicals available from your Jeep parts dept will restore the normal idle, if not ,run a fuel pressure test to see if the fuel filter needs to be replaced and restore fuel pressure to the fuel system.
