Check the fuses in the PDC next to the battery. I managed to get the positive and negative the wrong way round when I bought a battery and installed it in the dark without realising that the terminals on the battery were the opposite way to what I was expecting. There was a major spark when I touched the negative clamp to the positive terminal, and two of the big fuses in the PDC blew. I can't remember which ones, but they did their jobs, because after I replaced them the ZJ was fine. No other damage.
I've experienced that loud rapid clicking before. It happened after it was sitting for a week. What would happen is I would try to start it, it would click then the alarm would start flashing (no horn).
As I recall I fixed it by removing the battery terminals, cleaning them, then hooked it up and she fired right up. In my case too much mud and dirt had given me a bad connection to the battery. So it is possible you messed up the battery connections/battery or possibly the battery wires. Try swapping a battery from a friends car to just see if it will start. And go from there.
Trying to be positive for ya! Good luck!

Will the battery cables stretch far enough to allow the battery to be put in backwards? Mine don't. The only reason I was able to connect the cables up backwards was because I bought the wrong model of battery, so it had the positive and negative terminals the opposite way around. I should have bought an 85BR60K, and I bought an 85B60K - that missing "R" in the model number made the difference. And then I didn't want to wait until morning to install it, so I did it in the dark...
