Usually old plugs. Take the nearest one out and look at it. If it needs changing go ahead and get a set. If it looks fairly new then check the gap on it. For mine the gap is .052" - .056". If you plan on keeping the car a long time do yourself a favor and get the better plugs that last longer. Its a squeeze for the passenger side.

If that doesn't help you may try "Carburetor and Fuel Injector Cleaner" and get those injectors clean.

What causes a 1993 Jeep Wrangler to stall on occasion?

Could be several things, from a leaking vacuum hose (unlikely if it is stalling occasionally), worn spark plugs, (which would also cause hard starting, hesitation). Most likely it is the idle sensor, which is located on the intake close to where the air filter tube goes into the engine. It is a small piece, with a wire attached to it. It most likely would follow with a check engine light, if equipped, that would come on after the stall. It's not an expensive piece, and not hard to install.
