So since I'm putting my R/T back together and have put the working tipm back in it the other Nitro can't move. I don't want to keep putting the r/t one back in it in case it is doing the same damage that fried the original but I've seen these same style fuse blocks in many Chryslers including 2014 wranglers.
Could I use one of these newer blocks and just program it to the nitro in car with alpha or are there internal difference that wouldn't work?

Actually I've already talked to that guy directly and it seems like all of the rebuilders are focusing on the fuel pump relay, which I've already replaced myself along with all of the other internal relays. Nothing I did helped my no crank no start issue.
I am currently reading through the 16 page thread about the tipm that Nitrogen wrote up and learning a lot so maybe I'll come across the issue in that. Seems like getting into the workings of the tipm isn't likely to happen but I reasoned that getting the newest version of the part might mean the issue was solved.

But since swapping the tipm solved the problem I am trying to figure out if there is another problem causing the tipm to go out. As many have said, they swapped the tipm with this problem only to have it happen again in a couple months. It's an expensive problem to keep fixing.

anyways the answer to this thread question is, maybe
if the vehicle has the same engine, transmission, keyfob security system and around the same year, there s a good chance the engine would start and run but there could be a heap of things that need sorting out for the vehicle to function as it should, more expense programming,
the TIPM may look the same but could be totaly different on the inside, it could just go bang and burn up a few modules, wiring harneses etc, and due to the cost nobody want to take the risk, even when you buy a second hand TIPM you are never sure if it is a faulty unit,
pretty sure someone said that on later nitros ( 2010 on ) the CANBUS runs at a diffferent speed, but not 100% sure if its true
personaly i would put the old TIPM back in, starting at the starter motor and working my way back, keep fault finding untill i find the issue, from inserting the key too the engine starting there are plenty of things that need to happen, and there is a way to test pretty much everything, even if the TIPM is the cause at least you will be 100% sure, and with a bit of luck you can fix it or bypass the fault,
