Hard to start when cold on 1995 Jeep Wrangler

My 95 Jeep Wrangler is hard to start when cold. I replaced plugs, wires, distributor cap and rotor button yesterday, but no improvement. The problem became serious about 2 weeks ago. I can always eventually get it to start, and then have a strong fuel odor. Any thoughts? Thanks.

Check the vacuum line going to the fuel pressure regulator if there are signs of fuel in the vacuum line the regulator will require replacement. I have seen the problem many times and will cause a hard start and fuel smell.
