starts hard after sitting in sun

My '03 TJ starts hard after sitting out in the hot sun. It turns over fine but doesn't want to fire up right away. It doesn't do this in the morning when it's cooler. Any thoughts?

This could be a shot in the dark but it's just my two cents. Clean your IAC and see if that fixes the problem. I had a similar experience where I thought it was hard to start after it rained, turns out as time went on it was just a random occurrence but got progressively worse. Cleaning the iac fixed the problem for me. It's free and easy and a great place to start. Give it a shot
