Although it seems early in life, you may have an intermittant ignition switch; we have replaced several on our varying fleet of Jeeps.
I would also invest (already have) in a code reader which can be had (on sale) for as little as $40 US at Harbor Freight or $200 from auto parts stores. Although if it is an ignition switch problem this may or may not give you a sensible code. The current generation of OBD code readers work in about any vehicle but ours is OBD II & CAN enabled which is the most advanced available. They all come with a code translation book and some with a CD with a simple program for PCs that will look up the code for you.
