Heat Issue with startup

I have a 1997 TJ and am having problems with the weather being too hot. I have noticed that in the morning it starts up just fine but once midday rolls around (right now around 90-105 temp) I turn the key and nothing happens. does not even turn over. My lights, air and radio come on about 5 seconds later but nothing starts. I tried it later in the evening and it starts right up. Just replaced battery this past winter. Just got oil and all fluid levels up a week ago. Only issue I have had is that my transfer case shattered on the road about 2 months ago and had to get that all replaced. Thanks for any and all help.

check your battery ground and battery terminals. If these are good and tight, no corrosion try giving your starter a tap if it starts after that the armature could be freezing up or bad solenoid. also check the cables from the fus ebox to the starter they can sometimes corrode or come loose from ground
