Nuetral safety switch. Are you getting fuel? (fuel/spark/air is needed)
There a million no-start threads on here, keep searching and poking around the forum.

Crank position sensor, replace the f-ing crank position sensor for crap sakes! A neutral safety switch will cause a no crank problem, you have a no spark problem. Do a search on "no spark" and you will see that the crank sensor is the problem 99% of the time.

Could be the cam sensor, the ASD relay, or the #20 fuse (I think that is the correct number fuse) under the hood. PCMs don't fail very often.

i am having the same problem. i replaced the cps and coil and still no spark. after i did all that i was checking all my fuses under the hood and the eng control fuse was blown. i put a new fuse in there and it just pops when i turn the key on. now i put a jumper wire in the and it didnt get hot and it fired right up. i started to have all these problems after a trip up to the badlands. i went into some deep water and some mud. i was wondering if i need a new ecm. oh its a 95 with a 4.0

Come to think of it i also had a jumper wire in my fuze box too.My wife had the jeep b4 we got together and had some trouble out of it and some ppl stopped and helped her and she said he told her he fixed it temporarily.That was 8 yrs ago and come to think of it the jumper wire is not there now but i dont remember what it was jumping

If that fuse is blowing, check the wiring to the O2 sensor for a short to ground.
