help needed

ok so i just got my 97 tj 2.5 L back together. i had to replace the head gasket. it was sitting for like 8 mon due to me not having time to do anything with it. the problem i'm having is that now that i have it back together and went to start it up ( trying to jump it off ) it does not have the power to turn over. what i was wanting to know is if i did something wrong or is the batt just that dead that i cant even jump it off?

Probably the battery after having sat for that long. I'd let it sit while hooked to the other running vehicle your jumping it from in an effort to let it charge some before trying to crank it. Or take it to a local autoparts store and get it checked for free.
