    Sounds like an air intake issue. Not sure which engine you have - if it's the 4.0L SOHC, the intake manifold o-ring gaskets often leak and could cause this issue possibly. Other than that, verify vacuum hoses are all intact and the air tube is not leaking. You could have an idle air control valve sticking also.
