Electrical/Starting Issues Cj7

"Not a peep from my jeep..."

Vehicle flooded; I waited for a few minutes, patiently, and then it started.

1 mile down the road, at a light, sputtered, back-fired, died.

Stuck in a busy intersection at rush hour, trying to start. It's cranking as the cars are piling up around me and behind me.

Vehicle then keeps cranking, even after I've turned the key off. Tried to let off clutch and stall it, but doesn't even stall, just mozies up with each crank. Finally, dead, nothing... No sounds, no crank, no lights, no nothing...

Flatbed home. Then replace Solenoid, removed starter and had it tested (which tested fine). Reinstalled starter, cleaned battery terminals, wire terminals coming to and from Solenoid. Still nothing. Attempt to jump vehicle, and cables are hot and smoking. Scratched my head, and guessed ignition switch, next.... Any body else who can lend an idea?
