Rough starting up

I got a 95 yj 2.5L 4 banger and recently it's been getting hard to start up. It cranks for about 5-10 seconds and then it starts. It use to be able to start right up without hesitation but now it's taking a lot of effort. I changed the distributor cap and wires about 6 months ago and I change my spark plugs regularly. I'm thinking it could be my ignition but want to get some opinions about it first before I tear her apart and replace it.

that could be one of several things...ignition coil getting weak, clogged fuel filter, rotor button, fuel pressure regulator come to mind right off...fuel pump?.....make sure you're getting good fuel pressure and good spark and then go from there.....
