90 Computer Headache

I have a 90 Wrangler w/ 2.5L 4 cyl. that since purchase has not run for more than 2 wks. After initial breakdown, I replaced fuel filter, fuel pump, ignition coil/module, cap, rotor, wires, plugs, and crank shaft position sensor with no success. Took to Chrysler dealer to find out that the computer was bad. I had computer replaced and it ran fine for about 2 wks. I began having the same symptoms: cutting out during exceleration and leveling out. It would idle fine but upon take off it would begin bucking and spitting violently. Could let it set for a few minutes and start back up and it would run fine for rest of day(sometimes). Since then, I have had to let it sit for lack of $ ($1500 already dropped). 2 months later I put a new battery in it as exsisting one was dead and it started right up. Ran for another week and began same old symptoms. Now I am lead to believe that the computer may be fried again because it will turn over but will not start. Symptoms seemed to occurred during wet conditions. I am sure it is electrical issue under the hood. If there is any suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it!!!
