replaced entire pump assembly and it still takes some cranking to start!

I was lucky to have my warranty cover a fuel pump assembly and was lucky enough to have it all installed and out the door for 130 bucks.
But it turns out, the jeep still does the problem with having to crank it over for a few seconds before starting.

The only difference is before it did it every time, but now it fires right up after it has been running, only when it sits for more then 10-15 mins does it do it.

so The dealer brought it back from the oil change place and it wasn't 5 mins till I left, so it started fine. I went to class and 2 hours later came out and she struggled to start. turned it off and the fired it back up and it had no problems at all.
kept playing with it the rest of the day and its the same story.

The replacement was OEM, the dealer had to hassle with the warranty company because they wanted to use a cheaper aftermarket one.

could it be I got a faulty like I have read a few of you had come across?
Im sooo bummed out, hopfully the dealer will eat the deductible and get this figured it. Its sad jeeps have this Chrysler BS. I should have bought an effing Honda

Ugh, im just so ticked off.
