check your coolant levels, also the diverter flap may be stuck, under the dash passenger side, its a vacum opperated unit, or heater core may be pluged

I now think the heater core is pluged. Do you know which hose on this jeep is the supply for the heater core, long or short hose? Checked under the dash night befor last, alls good there. Coolant and thermostat also good.

There should be two smaller diamater hoses. A supply and a return . With the vehicle at tempiture they should both be very warm to the toutch

They make a garden hose adaptor you can get at your local auto parts store.
