Dash lights

I have a 2001 wrangler sport. When I have my windshield wipers on, the interior dash lights dim and brighten. I also have my headlights on. The dash lights are fine with the headlights on, but once I put the wipers on, the dash and radio dim then brighten for a second. Then dim for a second and go back bright. Any idea what to check?

That definitely sounds like either a missing or weak electrical ground connection. If anyone has been working around any of the Jeep's electrical connections, it's possible he forgot to reconnect a ground wire.
