YJ Won't Start

Good Evening:

I have a 1989 YJ with the 4.2 mated to an AX15 transmission. Recently I put it up on jack stands so that I could change the front brakes and replace the radiator. I put it back down on the tires and went toi start it and nothing happens when I turn the key. All the gauges come on and I have verified the battery is good, but still nothing happens when I turn the key. Any suggestions?

there are lots of thing to check when your car is not starting. try cranking the gas pedal thrice then try to start your engine. check also your spark plugs. anyway welcome to the forum. let me know how it goes. but i suggest you make again a new thread to get more answers because your post is in the wrong section. this is an introduction page.
