Sounds like a bad battery and cold weather.

Sounds like a battery issue. Have it load tested to make sure. I have found in any vehicle, including Jeeps, that the best way to start it is to turn the ignition switch to the on position and pause for a split second before you continue to turn the ignition switch to start. Gives everything a chance to activate and less strain on the system.

Also make sure your connections are tight on the battery. My negative terminal wasn't tight and I had the same problem. Also clean the terminals
