    It sounds like it might be a fuel pressure issue.
    Try turninh your key to the on position and listen for the fuel pump to stop runnibg then turn the key to start. Maybe that will give you a clue. Another thought is that maybe the starter is pulling to much current when you first give it a spin, and then the second time it could h

    It might be a fuel pump/fuel pressure problem.
    Try turning your key to the on position and listen for the fuel pump, when it stops running turn the key to start...and see if it starts up ok.

    Another wild guess is to check to see if the stsrter is pulling to much current.

    Good luck

Hard to start in mornings

A common cause is a faulty check valve in the pump. The check valve prevents fuel pressure from draining back into the tank. The pump gets power from the relay for only 3 seconds during crank which would not be enough if the fuel line has zero pressure. You could cycle the key on and off a few times and probably start it quicker if that is the problem.
Have the fuel pressure checked after sitting overnight.

My jeep is driving fine, but it starts very hard in the morning - I have spent so far almost $2,000 in various parts at the dealership, but the problem is still there. Any suggestions?

If you would share with us all that was done , it may help us to diagnose the problem more efficiently.

I spend $2000 at the dealership , doesnt help much.

My first gut feeling is going to be a fuel pressure leak... overnight the fuel pressure could leak down... and cause the engine to starve for fuel durring morning start up.

You can check this by doing the following next time you do your morning start up proceedure.

Turn the key on , but do not attempt start the vehicle yet.
turn the key back off.
turn the key on... until you hear the fuel pump pressure has built again.
turn the key off. and then back on ... and after the pump stops... try to start it.

Hard to start / engine rotates but wont start

check fuel pressure with a gauge,turn the key in the on position an read pressure ,if pressure goes lets say to 40 or 50 on one key cycle pump is prob. good . if it takes 3 to 4 key cycles to achieve this pressure ,pump is bad or connection in tank is bleeding off over night.
