    OK, you have established that the engine is cranking (turning with starter engaged when the key is turned) Now, you need to determine if you have spark or fuel at the engine when you crank it over. Then, you can begin to do further testing to find out why whats not there isn't there!!! (why it's not starting)

I have a 94 jeep cherokee that wont turn over or wont start?

No cranks is here
the starter just CRANK.
IF lucky so does the crank shaft turn.
then the engine starts and runs, (this is not turns)
it's running
the EFI then sustains running , if ABS stays happy.
the engine can also stall.

2005 dodge durango wont turn over

a 05/06 Jeep Dodge, engine swap, really? you posted to jeep...
no engines stated, there are many used . USA car?
won't crank robustly?
or cranks perfectly but wont start and run?

turns over means , zero (so does NO FIRE)

many parts turn over to attain a start and run condition.
RUNNING is the end goal.

if any car fails to start and run and the starting system is good.
then we do this. (gasoline cars, )

scotty assumes the engine is good, (has compression x num cyl)
some arent

'03 Jeep Liberty starts weakly and needs gas pedal to idle

Turning over is what the starter does to the engine can turn an engine over with no spark plugs in it...but you can't start it. Turning over is cranking .....the starter turns (cranks) the engine over (comes from when you had to put a crank in the front of the engine and crank it.)
Does it crank normally but has trouble starting???????

1996 Jeep Cherokee wont start

Have you tried to jump power directly on the starter? make the BIG power cable touch the small one on the starter with it still in the engine.(power touching the starter solenoid) use a LONG screwdriver to make them touch. you will not get shocked just make sure you only touch those 2. it will spark a bit but just hold it on there. if your starter clicks and does nothing then you have a bad starter. if it works then you have other problems.If it starts to smoke stop and make sure your engine is not frozen by turning the crankshaft with a large ratchet.

make sure voltage flows WHEN cranking also. check voltage at the starter while cranking. make sure it maintains 12 volts. or very close to it. nothing below 10.8 volts. check for corrosion on battey cables if voltage drops below that. that shows you have a curremt problem. also check grounds. or make new ones you know are good.

Good luck
