I am not anywhere near Ft Carson but would be willing to help. What's the problem?

Jeep is completely dead. No start, no clicking, absolutely nothing. Got the battery tested it is good. Im leaning towards ignition switch, but would that cause the jeep to completely just die out of the blue one day? Was running just fine, then I went to start her on a colder morning and bam...dead!

No lights? Radio?

I would start looking at your ground connection.

It was the ignition switch. Got it changed out and she's back up and good again!
