Default HUGE eletrical issue in 79 bronco

so ive got everything done with my bronco and its ready to bog..except the fact that i cant get it to start. after i got the transfer case in and i started putting tranny fluid in and we went to start it..and i got nothing. we started testing wires and ive got power all the way to the fuse box and the weird part is that ive got power running through the body when the key is turned on. another weird note is that i cant jump the solenoid at all, when we try it doesnt do ANYTHING! any help here would be greatly appreciated. i know were just missing something really simple but were totally stumped. thanks in advance guys!
