I tried to crank my 97 wrangler and it just wouldn't even turn over. Replaced the starter and solenoid, getting good power to starter, all fuses are good, getting good power to my fuse box under hood. Still plan to check all grounding but after that I don't know where to go. I am getting all my lights and the battery is good. If anyone has any info please help!

If it's a standard then push it and let clutch out after ya get a little speed in like second gear, if the tires just lock up then you got more than starter problems.
How was the motor running before this happened?
The motor ran fine. I had to replace the alternator but other than that it seemed fine. Never missed a lick. If the tires just lock up then is the motor locked up?
Yea if get going a few mph and dump the clutch and the back tires just skid to a halt then you got issues.
I would try turning the crank with a socket & breaker bar or use a flywheel turner, pull the plugs out to relieve the compression.
