    there are a couple things it couls be ie; fusable link in harness, ignition, possible grounds, .. try to put a jumper to the positive main wire at back of altinator this will backfeed the run part of ignition when the key goes from the start position to run position. if this works its a positive problem not a ground. once you know if its pos or gnd.you can chase from there if you find its a pos prob then test the ignition for power in the run position and test the fusible links under the hood.

    87 yj has the motorcraft starter and ford style starter relay on the firewall,does it also have the other multifunction relay on the firewall ,about a foot below the ford one ? if so check there for a rotten wire or burned up fusable link .
