You probably just jolted the main electrical connector on the back of the instrument panel.
However, to be on the safe side you should check for codes. AutoZone will do it free if you don't have your own reader.

Can you elaborate on the issues? Not blowing hot? Only certain speeds work? Only certain vents? Details would help. It may not be as complex fix as you think.

That's a shame, but it doesn't describe anything to which a meaningful answer can be given.

Most of the wiring for the HVAC is in the dash, though some is in the engine compartment.
The heater core is located inside the HVAC housing behind the dash.
cant find an outline or manual anywhere on the internet.
I can help you with that, go here: Jeep Manuals

It was the cat. I replaced both the cat and muffler; now the jeep is fine. Thanks Mac and Paul.
#1729 of 1888 1998 with possible computer or sensor problem
Mar 07, 2010 (8:35 am)
I have had a 1998 jeep wrangler for the past 5 or 6 years. A few years ago it started to have problems after start up. After driving about 100 yards it will start dogging out and sometimes lurching forward. Seems to do this almost every time i start it up. If i happen to be sitting still when ever it happens the RPM's will just go real low and quickly come back up and this will happen for maybe 5-10 seconds and then stop. It seems no one has ever heard of jeeps doing this, so our mechanic has had to look far and wide with very few answers.

I can think of a couple of things it might be but first, have you had it checked for codes?
