Cold Start Problem Still

I still have have an existing small problem with my 2004 TJ 6cyl Auto (only 67k). When I first start it in the morning the jeep jumps to 1400 rpm and immediately drops to 800 rpm for 3 or 4 seconds (running rough) and levels at 1100 smooth while warming up. Only happens first start of the day. I believe it will get worse with colder weather approaching. I have replaced the TPS sensor, plugs and the IAC was spotless. Any ideas? thks

I had a similar problem with my last truck, and it turned out to simply be a dirty throttle body. Maybe give that a look?
