    I have the exact same problem. I thought it was the battery so I bought I new one today and replaced the old one. I still have the same problem so I guess I will be trying the alternator now.

If you have a multimeter, you can check the voltage on the battery with the engine running. It should be above 13.5 volts dc, if not, then you are running off the battery, and the battery is probably good.

I have a 2004 Jeep Wrangler with 43000 miles, when I go to start it, it doesn't click, and the engine doesn't start, all the lights work, the radio works, everything works. I tried to jump start it that...

Check your battery charge level, fluid level (if possible), cable connections and cable condition. Lights, radio, and other accessories draw MUCH less than the starter, so they will often work even when the battery is too low to spin the starter. Corroded connections and/or frayed or loose cables will not let enough current pass to spin the starter.
