digsdirt Banged on the Starter with a hammer... (should have considered the ole hammer to starter trick first...) It started right up.

The two lines don't need to be connected to get it to start...

Would not having these two small lines re-connected yet be my problem?

Thanks for any help in regards.
Those are the "down" and "up stream" air injection tubes and have nothing to do with your YJ not starting. Check around the starter, you may have hit into it and knocked something loose. If your battery is at 12 volts the next thing to check is the starter solenoid.

78j10 Did you do any kind of welding on the jeep? Coudl have popped a fuse. my yj did have an o2 or the check pipes and still ran.

carlyj Those are the downstream and upstream check valves. I'm not sure what they do exactly, but i agree, try putting them back on. I know that the THERMAC air cleaning system uses them in some way, but i doubt it's critical. Starter maybe?

KBR97 Well if you disconnected them and now the Jeep wont start thats the first thing I would do. I dont know much about YJs but that could be some sort of O2 sensor.

Hook it back up and see what happens
