Have you done the nutter bypass and the big cap upgrade? Try these first as they are easy to do and do not cost much.

Yeah... Ive checked battery cables, checked fuses and fuselinks and solenoid etc.... Still wont crank with switch or power up dash, lights etc... Does the nutter bypass do anything that would bypass the computer or wirirng that may be keeping my CJ dead ??

Sounds like its in the ignition power switch hooked to the lower part of the colum...Should have all the ign wires plus it should have a main hot that will power the coil and other motor stuff from the inside...most are white and will have the ignition rod from the key switch to it...
