So have you checked for codes?
I would maybe do that first. The Jeep can hold onto codes, some think it cannot unless its an OBDII, but mine did when my tps was bad on my YJ. There was no CEL, but there was a code.
Anyway, do the key trick and see if there are any codes, remember 12 and 55 don't mean anything important.

I would do an injected test next if it were me. Sounds like you have some spark and air. All that's left is fuel.

Well after much debate, I decided to go out and get a new coil. $42 and a hour drive, I replace the coil. And guess what. It started.

But I did notice that there is a crack in the insulation of the old (week old) coil. And I remember specifically looking at it, and the crack was not there before.

So I may have some sort of ground issue, overheating my coil or something. Not sure, but it runs, so I can get it back to my shop monday.
