Recently came across problems with my TJ.

Ok first off, I don't know much about mechanical work, but I'm working on it. But recently my Jeep started acting up. It only ever happens when I'm initially cranking it up, most of the time it does 2 turns and then has a short lag before it finishes turning to crank up...which wasn't too big of a deal until recently (so far 2 times) it just completely wouldn't even turn at all and I had to let it sit a few hours before it would even turn to crank. My guess is that it has something to do with the starter or alternator but I figured I would at least ask here and see what I got. Thanks for all of the help in advance.

Sounds like your battery. Did you test it?

Agreed, its probably the battery, but you could pull both the battery and alternator and take them down to a parts store to have them tested. If both of them test OK then check the starter.

If you pull the alternator make sure to disconnect the battery first.
