If it's a 4.0L SOHC, you may have unplugged or damaged the Crank Sensor or wiring directly below the water pump. You say "Checked the sensors" with a scan tool? What was the fuel pressure reading? Were there any codes in the system?

We replaced the crank sensor to be on the safe side,fuel pressure is good, fuses are all good everything is hooked back up correctly, checked the shut off switch for the fuel, fuel pump is fine along with the relay fuse for it, it will turn over just wont start up,
