Update........put new Bosch fuel pump in and so far no bogging. Still takes 5 or 6 times of turn over to fire up.

Awesome to here the bogging is gone with a new fuel filter and Fuel Pressure Regulator!

I'd start by looking at battery for the slow start since you've already put in new plugs/wires/cap. Do this test:
Hook up your YJ to another vehicle with booster cables. Let us know if it starts faster than without them.

Do you notice the starter cranking slower than normal? It usually slows down before it ultimately dies.

I don't really know what's normal starting for it. Since I had it (1 week) it's been taking a looooonnng time to start and now it's a very good improvement from what it was

Some people say the YJ will always take at least a few cranks to start. Mine goes on the 4th or 5th revolution.

sounds like its good to me. Just drive it around a lot before you go out into the woods. Nothing can predict future reliability better than a history of reliability.

The best thing to do is to bring two jeeps with you. you get twice the reliability when someone is able to tow you out.
