Unhappy 2013 Jeep Wrangler Stalling - cold start - PLEASE HELP!

Is anyone else having an issue with their Jeep??? I have a 2013 automatic Jeep Wrangler unlimited, only 20K miles on it. I've had it for a year. After it hit it's first 2K miles it started to stall whenever I started it (back in March 2013). What would happen specifically is I would start it in the morning on a cold day, after about 10 mins of heating my Jeep up I would go to put it into reverse to back out of my driveway & it would stall on me. The problem only happens when its cold. So now that it's cold again the problem has continued to happen and it happens almost every morning. I've had it in and out of the dealership 4 times now (3 times within the last week and half)and they can't seem to figure out the issue. First the computer read that I was having communication issues so they installed a new computer, however, after installing the new computer it stalled on me again this morning. So now its back in the dealership & their computer supposedly didn't read anything this morning. I'm beyond frustrated & would appreciate any help or input if anyone has experienced or come across this problem. I'm passed the "term of protection" with the lemon law so I'm not quite sure what to do if the dealership can't fix this problem. This seems like a really big safety issue...

On cold mornings, 20 - 30 degrees, I let my 2013 JKU Sport warm around 5 min before I place in reverse and have no issues. If I don't let it warm it will spit and spew for a 1/2 mile. No issue otherwise. Have 11000 on it and it was like that since day 1. Purchased in oct 12!
