It could still be the battery voltage. Check the voltage while you try cranking the starter. I would guess it will drop down below 10 volts. You will need a jump start and new battery. Otherwise it could be a starter. Good luck, let us know what you find.

This. It has to be load tested. A dead battery will show 12v when its sitting in your jeep. It just doesn't have the current to turn over the engine. I'd almost guarantee you just need a new battery. Factory ones aren't great and last 2-5 years. Any more and you're on borrowed time

I had similar symptoms when my 08 was 40 months old....especially if I let it sit with the radio on while fiddling with it. The second time it happened I was determined to find cause of the problem.

After 2 checks by the "battery SHOWS 12v" pros, I replaced it with a premium new battery.

Problem solved.
