Have they tried a new starter motor? That can lead to the same slow/hard start issues.

drive it until it won't start anymore. It's obviously not a battery issue and
I don't have the luxury of letting them troubleshoot a problem for weeks on

I had the same problem with the delayed start....for about three weeks. Then the starter went dead and had to be replaced. Now all is well.

Got the Jeep back yesterday. Everything was covered under the 7/70 powertrain warranty.
Looks like the vibration is gone!
The dealership was unable to track down the slow start issue but it's still occuring. I guess we'll just drive it until it won't start.

Repair List:

1>> Rear Pinion
2>> Drive shaft
3>> T-case
4>> RF Diff
