YJ starting issue

My 95 YJ is having starting problems. It turns over (cranks) fine, but requires a minute or so of pumping the gas, waiting then trying again and finally it catches and starts. I have gone to pep boys and had battery replaced, didnt work. Then they checked alternator and watts and that was fine. I did a full tune up, which did nothing. It has never had a fuel filter change, so I am thinking this is next. Any other ideas to try that I can do myself. If it is the fuel filter, is this easy to change at home. Thanks

Could be a couple things: choke, maybe dirty IAC, fuel filter (but I doubt it). You should change the fuel filter anyways because you said it has never been done. it is easy to change the filter
It works 60 percent of the time....every time.

I currently own 2000 Wrangler TJ 2.5l, 1988 Grand Wagoneer 5.9l. I have had 1993 Cherokee 2.5l, 1997 Cherokee4.0l, 1986 Comanchee 2.5, 1985 grand wagoneer 5.9l, 1993 Wrangler 2.5l, 1998 grand cherokee limited 5.9l, 1986 cherokee 2.8l, a 1990 Wrangler 4.2l,
