There is no headlight relay, it could possibly a fuse though.

Check to see if it blew again. Mine did that today. I finally found the source. The wires right before the connectors to the back of the headlights were missing some insulation. When i cleaned my engine carp. I moved them and caused them to touch causing a short.

uhm im pretty sure the fuse isnt a standard fuse.. i know when i pulled my headlight fuse to do the "brights stay on with factory foglights" mod, the fuse had 4 prongs on it.. my jeep is the older tj, it was located in my glove box.. there are 2, not sure which it is though.. the newer jeeps (01+) i believe is under the hood

That was a relay, not a fuse.
