Try pulling a spark plug out and leave on the wire while someone else starts the car so you can see if spark is getting to the plug. If not getting spark,it could be rotor or rotor cap. If getting spark, it probably is bad gas or the carbeurator (spelling?)

remove the spark plug wite off the plugs 1 at a time replacing right after testing each so as not to cross wire after one is off test it to see if its getting fire through the wire there is a light bulb like item that can be bought for testing wires at your local parts store if its not getting fire check your coil packs using the same tester and the wire adapter if those arent working there is a pick-up coil that the coil packs are mounted to its a small metal plate least on my car anyways most of the time those go bad and people thing the worst they are easy to change and fairly priced mine costed $38.00 at advanced auto
Hey I have a 96 grand Cherokee aswell I had the same prob. When you turn the key to the on position does the dash light say your out of gas but you know your not? If so it's your crank shaft position sensor a $60 part it's located above the tran so youll have to lower not drop it to get to it. Shouldn't take more than 30 mins to do hope I was able to help an good luck
Are you getting fuel to the engine. The fuel pump may be defective, since you have changed these items. A crankshaft position sensor will cause it not to fire up either. I had this happen on a jeep grand. So fin out if you're getting gas to the engine. then that will give you a better idea. Get someone to help, open the gas cap, put you ear close to the opening and have someone turn the switch on ( not starting engine) and listen for a pump to turn on. It may be a very faint sound. Try it a few times to be sure you hearing or not hearing it kicking on. It should turn on when the switch is in the on position.
Is it fuel injected or carb??? Try holding the gas pedal to the floor while turning the jeep over. This sometimes makes gas pump thru to the cylinders. Have you changed the fuel filter???? I know alot of jeeps have a fule filter with a bypass back to the tank, and sometimes the filter will be bypassing to the tank instead of the the motor. Check it out?????
