Time to switch dealers. Most nowadays will offer a loaner or a rental for any warrenty work done. Call around.

Jeep will pay/reimburse for any rentals if the dealer won't, during warranty repairs.
Give Chrysler a call and let them know what is going on, they will get you taken care of.

|AsimpsonJk||So everything turned out ok just a dead cell in the battery. Just kinda pissed it took the dealer 8hrs to find out and they made me pay 70$ for my rental. But atleast my jeep is back and on the trails/street!!!|

If the battery checks out (load test, not just voltage) I'd be more inclined to think the starter itself is the culprit. It can dump the battery voltage to ground.
I thought a shorted starter solenoid usually means it sticks closed and keeps spinning the starter even after the engine is running. The sound that makes will scare the crap out of you.

My 87 YJ had a starting gremlin that ultimately got it traded. It went on for months. Would start fine, then just not start but turned over fine. It happened everywhere but in my garage at home so I had replaced just about everything it seemed until the day it wouldn't start in my garage. Good I think... I'll find it once and for all. So I trouble shoot the problem, bought the "broken" replacement part and installed it, Jeep started and ran great for weeks until...
It was a dark and snowy night when my wife asked me to go to the store for sugar. Sure! I love drivin' in the snow with the Jeep so off I go. Only problem, I forgot my wallet so only had the money in my pocket which ended up being the exact amount I needed for the sugar. Got back in the Jeep and you guessed it... no start. I'm out of change for a phone call (before the days of cell phones ya know), so I trudge home the mile in the snow and call a wrecker to take said Jeep to dealer for them to once and for all fix my problem.
I met the wrecker and before he pulled it on the deck, I checked to be sure it still didn't start, but when the Jeep got unloaded at the dealer, they started it right up... I bought a new '97 TJ on the spot.

Well I jinxed myself by say I haven't had any of the gremlins yet with my jeep. Well this morning went to start my 2012 sport and nothing but click. Dealer thinks it the starter solenoid shorted out killing my battery and the starter. Thankfully it's still under full warranty. But the dealer I use doesn't pay for rental so that's coming out of pocket unless i want to get my insurance involved. And just in time for my high rock 4x4 bumper with carrier to get delivered. And now it's sitting in the garage until I get the jeep back from the dealer.
