Hard Starting / Remote Start

Have an issue that's getting worse on my '14. In the mornings it stumbles quite a bit before it fires. It's gotten to the point that remote start no longer works in the morning. Any ideas?

I'm in Austin TX so no freezing overnight to speak of. I know it's still under warranty and all, I just hate dealing with dealers and don't have all day for them to tell me they couldn't reproduce the issue.

Sounds simple, but have you had your battery checked? Stock JK/U batteries are not known to last that long.

On the remote start, I've heard that it will not work if there's a fault code stored or if the low fuel light is illuminated.

It's your camshaft position sensor. 2014's had a bad batch. Do a search and you will find a thread where I made a procedure on how to replace it.
