jeep tj wont start

hi guys, my jeep was stored for about 2 months, last week when i attempted to start the jeep it wouldnt start, i replaced tha battery in hopes that it was just dead. After the new battery was installed the jeep seems to want to start but doesnt, would you folks kindly tell me what to inspect? i am not to mechanically inclined, so please bear with the many questions i may be asking later. thanks

I currently have had the same problem. My jeep kind of just stuttered out and died. Replaced the battery (the old one was a pile) and it ran for a couple days, then shut off. I would check the alternator. Take off the connections and clean them like no other; Battery, Starter and alternator. If this does not work then go to this link:

Best of luck! Mine was the alternator, easy swap which if you need to swap the alternator here is a good write up:
