Sounds like your starter is starting to "stick". This usually will always happen from the heat of the engine. After it cools a bit the starter will "unstick" and work again. To see if this is the issue take a broomstick or something similar and as someone holds down the starter button, tap on the starter with the end of the broomstick. A couple of taps should unstick it and it will turn. If this works for you it may be time to replace or rebuild the starter. I just went through this exact scenario this evening.

Might also want to see if it is your starter solenoid. Its right behind the passenger seat above the radiator. It sits next to the fusebox in a rubber mount. It looks like a small box with a connector and 2 wires attached with allen screws. There is a 30 amp fuse on it, check that first. If your T-Rex is not cranking when you hit the engine start, try taking a cresent wrench and "jump" the 2 terminals with the allen screws using one end of the wrench. all it takes is a slight tap, if the starter kicks, your solenoid may be the culprit. They are available for about $25.00 on eBay. Carry the wrench till you change it just in case it gets stuck on the road.
