wont start

so i changed the spark plugs and wires yesterday to fix some bucking issues i have been having. then today i decided i might as well change the distributer cap and rotor. after doin this the jeep wont start. i have the correct firing order im pretty sure. i used this link for help with that Six Cylinder 4.0 Liter Jeep engine Specs - Jeepz.com
unless this diagram is backwards, which it does show it position differently, the only think i can think of is i got bad parts or the plugs fouled, any ideas...

I've always found it easier to replace one wire at a time, then there is no confusion. (for future reference)

I can't comment on order, since I have no distributor.

consider this a bump

put the old one back on putting the wires the same way, you'll know if you put the wire in the right place
