1989 Jeep Wrangler..Need advice!!

I am a new owner of a 1989 Jeep Wrangler, automatic 6 cylinder, that I got for my wife as she has always wanted one. Everything was working great, until last night, I was driving home and all of a sudden the headlights, tail lights, break lights, dash lights, and radio all went out. Fog lights work, along with turn signals work. Fuses all look good. Any adivice?

You probably have a main ground that is broken. Unfortunately, you or a shop is going to have to track it down. Check all of the affected connections and check the grounds to them and to the main circuit. Could be a tedious process but there is no choice because as you already know it can't be driven the way it is. Also, re-check the connections in and around the fuse box. Might seem basic but wiggle some wires and see if the lights come back on. As you were driving vibration could have loosened a ground just enough to cause it. I would have an auto electric shop deal with it if your basic checks fail.
