Exclamation 99 4.0 sputtered and eventually died...will not start again

I was driving my 99 4.0 and it started sputtering but then would kick in again but eventually died and now will start, but dies imediately. it seems like it would be the fuel pump but i wanted to see what others thought.

thanks in advance-

chris.

fuel pump and fuel filter would be the first things to check
