my shop i charge 2 hours to do a complete engine bay ground cleaning which may sound high but really it takes that long most times because airbox, battery tray, removal and ofcourse cleaning battery terminals, starter cable connections, alt cable connection, main body ground, engine ground and then all smaller grounds including ecm, tcm, lights, horns...and set engine basic settings and reprogram radio stations.
labor rate is near 100 per hour so 300 for that.
the most critical part is diag since if it doesnt need it you dont want to do it. why spend 300 on a ground cleaning when you might have a bad bulb shorting or turn signal relay.
since now i listed my common repair points you might want to look at those on your jeep and clean them up and apply some dielectric grease before taking to a mechanic. remember when cleaning that rust doesnt conduct very well. only reassemble when contacts are silver clean inclding hardware.
