i replace the motor in my 98 JGC and it too would not start, but upon putting the motor back in the Jeep i took notice that i may have "bumped" the crank positioning sensor, so i replaced that and it fired right up, im not saying that's definitely your problem given you included no details, but its a possibility, good luck
