00 wrangler 4.0L starting

i have a 00 wrangler 4.0L just got a couple weeks ago. i used to have a gm canyon (hated it, grandfather gave it to me) with my old gm i hardly had to put the key to the start position and it would start right up. however in my wrangler i have to hold the key longer (2-4 seconds) before engine will start. 4 seconds being like once normal 2-3 seconds. is this normal?

Yes and no. My TJ takes some time to start when it's cold outside, but so does my mom's XJ(4.0L). Check your cables and clean the battery posts and check the battery cables on the starter and frame ends.

try putting the key in aux and wait for your fuel pressure to rise then crank it up, could be your fuel pump if it starts right up
