starting problems.

Ok, new to the site. Ive always been more of a big truck, mud bogging type, but my dad has a 97 TJ sport. and i took it wheeling in NC and completely fell in love. i got a 4" on the way, and some 35's sitting in the garage waiting. But my jeep has a problem starting. when you get in it and turn the key, the motor attempts to crank, just never fires all the way up. back off the key and let it sit for a second or two, and turn the key over again, and it fires up like new. I've heard timing chain, fuel pump, and a laundry list of other things. has anyone had this sorta thing happen?? i can't wait to get this thing back on the trail, but i need to make sure its gonna start. any help would be awesome.
