Emergency - Dead Jeep

I went to start my Jeep (1987 Jeep YJ 258 I6) today and as soon as I turned the key everything died.

I have checked the battery and it has a full charge.

The coil is registering power

Nothing, I mean nothing works. The lights will not come on, the dash is dead, my hazards don’t work….

What can I check… This is really freaking me out

If you're not living on the edge...
you're taking up too much space.
