Jeep won't start, need some troubleshooting help

Ok so.. 03' TJ 4.0V6 manual trans wont start. Here's what I've done so far:

Check battery cables - tight, wires appear to be in good shape.
Tested battery - it shows 12V
Tried jump starting off wife's truck, no luck.
Replaced the starter - no luck.
Jumped the new starter soleniod - starter spins but flywheel doesn't engage.
Swapped starter relay - relay clicks but engine won't turn over.

After searching past threads I've narrowed it down to:

Broken ignition actuator pin?
Clutch safety switch?

Help help would be much appreciated!!
