I am doing a top end rebuild on an 01 rubicon. I found TDC and installed the camshaft with the “line” marking on the gear in the down position. The motor won’t start sounds like it’s in the wrong spot. Also I had the head bored and install a 93.00mm piston and ring.

So you have the T mark lined up with the index mark on the rear cover to locate TDC? As long as it is, then the cam timing mark should be down & even with the top of the cylinder.
If so, then the cam timing is correct and you should verify the valve clearances.

Is the cam marking on the gear or on the actual cam? Maybe I’m looking at the wrong thing

The mark is on the gear (ie. sprocket). A short line that is horizontal when at TDC.
