Warm starting problems

I have a 2012 JK and have some intermittent starting problems when I am out wheeling. OK this what happens, I will crank the engine and it will kind of sputter and die. I crank it again and it will start with no problems. I don't get a check engine light. I have only had this problem for the last couple of time I have taken it off road. On normal day to day driving I have never had this problem. I thinking it might be some type of vapor locking issue when starting and stopping while out on the trail. Dose any body else have the same problem?

Not sure if this is related but I was in for an oil change and dealer performed an update. He said it was to correct potential "intermittent no crank-no start issue".

Not sure if that is it. I will be taking it in for my 30K service this week, so I will have to check on that. One of the people I was running with yesterday had the same problem too.
