Hey, someone want to help me out.

Hey the jeep starts rough. Won't start on first crank, have to stop then try again and it fires up the second time. Im thinking its the fuel pump, the lines are dry and I aint finding gas anywhere. Can someone go to their TJ and press the valve under the hood on the line that feeds into the engine if it A) drips or B) sprays when the jeep is OFF.

Mine drips when the jeep is off and sprays all over when turned on. Now it may be because their is a drainback line (which seems dumb to me, why would you want to lose the pressure?)

Otherwise I was thinking of checking the spark plugs, O2 sensors, and the exhaust manifold because those can cause similar problems.

I checked and I have the same results on the fuel rail. I had the same issues as you and believe it or not, a new fuel cap fixed it. I changed the cap because I kept getting random CEL and the code was evap related.
