Another TJ No Spark little Diff. Story

I have a 1999 TJ 6cyl. automatic. It's been sitting for most of the winter. The other day I tried to start it. It started ran for a couple of seconds then hasn't started since. I'm not getting spark. I put a plug in the coil wire. I get spark there. I changed the Crankshaft Position Sensor mostly because that's was everyones guess. It was frozen in and took me a couple of days to grind it out. Still no spark. Changed the plugs, cap and rotor today. Nothing!! I am getting gas though. The plugs were wet when I took them out.
Any ideas where to go with it next? I'm not too much on all this computerized stuff!! Is there something simple I'm overlooking??
Thanks.....Joe

So which is it? You are, or are not getting any spark?

I put a plug in the coil wire that goes from the coil to the distributor cap. I got spark there. After putting the coil wire back on the cap. I did not get spark to the spark plug when in there normal plug wire.

Alright...I just checked for spark at the coil wire again. This time I did not have any. I haven't checked since I changed the CKS. I don't think I could have screwed that up. I checked voltage going to coil. I only have 11.1 volts going to the coil. My battery is showing 12.4 volts but drops down to 11 when I'm turning the engine over. I read in another post that the coil needed to be getting 12 full volts to work correctly. I put my volt meter on the end of the coil where the wire goes. I got a reading but it was all over the board so I don't really know what it proves just thought it seemed like something to check.
Could my alternator be whipped? How can I test it with out the engine running(preferably with out taking it out of the vehicle)? Any other ideas? If I screwed something up with that CKS how would I know? I really don't care for all this computer stuff. Too confusing. What is the path that actually tells the coil to spark? How does that CKS and the pick up inside the distributor come in to play?.......Thanks. Oh yeah..tried the new coil wire...still nothing!
