With all that heat, and the symptoms not changing, I'm thinking it's not ice. Especially with de-icer in the fuel. I'm also thinking fuel pump.

If I'm not mistaken, the XJ uses the same setup as other Mopar trucks and you'll either be going through the floor or dropping the tank to access it. You'll see what sort of shape the pickup sock is in when you go for the pumpů

Good luck.
