jeep starting problems

I got a 00 tj 4.0. After I let it sit for about 5 or 6 hours it has a lot of trouble starting.
It turnns over and everything it just won't fire up like it should. After a little bit it will start.
Once the jeep is running for a little bit I can shut it off and it will start right up. And everything is normal. Just seeing if anyone has had this problem and maybe someone more experienced can help me figure out what it is.thanks!!!!

trouble starting

Could be Fuel pump. Had 2 jeeps do this. Began having trouble starting then settled in to turn over crank no start, turn off, fires right up. $500-600 at a shop. Less than $200 part, really easer than you'd think. Run it dry, Drop the tank, swap the part. Only a few bolts hold the tank and the filler nozzle.

OP, mdm's post in the original thread is the best answer. If your fuel pump was going, you would have problems running as well.

No. I never had problems running. Just wouldn't start on the first try.
