Question I'm not getting any spark

I have a '89 wrangler 4.2, i had a problem with this a few months ago so I replaced the coil, cap and rotor, ignition module and plugs. Ran fine for a few months and now...Nothing... I exchanged the module for a new one and still nothing. I checked my fuse panel under the dash and didn't find any blown fuses. Any suggestions......
This has a carb, not fuel injection

I have an 88 YJ Wrangler. I went through 5 ignition modules and 2 coils. I finally changed it out for an old style distributor with points and condensor, hooked up to an MS II Blaster coil. Gap your plugs at .45 and you won't have any of the electronic crap to deal with. Mine runs great now.
