 You need to put as bit more information in.
 1. Is temp guage showing constant temp on or very close to halfway mark?
 2. are water levels Ok, rad full and header tank between low and high mark?
 3. Make sure air con off and as above not turned to re-circulate (common cause of misting up and temperature change).

 there was a recall for your year Barbarians for new Radiator cap to be fitted, you need to check with a dealer that yours was changed, they will access the information on their computer to see if recall was done.

Temp needle half way as normal. Water levels are all good. Air con off. But she still blowing hot an cold. Had the rad flushed out made no difference. Will get straight on to the dealer to see about the radiator cap il have to wait to Xmas is over. Do you think the lid could have anything to do with it.          She not pressurising the water  only have the jeep 10 months  good jeep but this is driven me mad their only 49000 mile on her an she do no hard work.          Was out in her today an all morning she was ok but coming home this evening cold (like sitten in a frige)

 Would be worth flushing the water out and getting a local garage to pressure fill it to make sure you get any air out or show up any blockage in the system.

 Doesn't indicate head gasket but if it is an air lock in water supply and you keep driving it you may well cause it to overheat and blow the gasket. You need to get it fixed quickly.

Can you access the heater hoses to disconnect and try running water through th stack to confirm you have flow? (I ask this as mine is different to others - V6 with LPG conversion - pipes everywhere)!

If you can't get water through, there's your problem. It would either be a blocked heater stack or (more probably) a faulty heater control switch.

If you do have flow, then try sending water back through the engine through the heater pipes.

As you're runnng with climate control, the electronics will maintain the temperature you select within the cab. This is usually done by regulating the fan speed and controlling the amount of hot engine coolant entering the heater matrix.

For this time of year when the air has a high moisture content, turning on the air conditioning circuit (the green LED) on the heater controls will reduce the moisture content coming into the cab and clear up the steamed windows.

As others have suggested, if you are getting cold air blown into the cab, check the valve that controls how much hot engine coolant is coming into the heater matrix is working. Make sure that the temperature probe inside the cab (in front of your left leg) is working too.
