I read a lot of guys have trouble with their PCM connection. Have a buddy wiggle and firmly hold the connection while you try turning it over.

IAC= Idle air control motor, a cylindrical shaped device mounted on the side of the throttle body. If you haven't already read the link above on things to do and check I'd suggest doing that before throwing more money at your Jeep.
