heat not blowing hot? and blower motor is working right? where's your engine temp? possible too strong coolant mix, worn water pump, fan clutch seized. you can try putting a peice of cardboard in front of the radiator to see if that helps. just don't overheat the thing.

do tj's have a heater control valve? it would be on one of the hoses near the heater core. vacuum line may have come off.

good luck, let us know how its going.
