Burrrr!!! No Heat In My Jeep!!!

My '03 Wrangler TJ 4 Cyl 2.4 liter Jeep does not have heat. The A/C blows cold and so does the heat. The A/C is a little colder than the heater, but nonetheless my heat doesn't work. I have flushed the radiator and put in a new thermostat. I think the problem might be with one of the switches or the damper valve. The heater hoses that go into the firewall are hot, but that heat is getting lost somewhere between there and my vents. Does anyone have any suggestions? My next step is to take it to the dealer or a mechanic to let them take a look. I am way to cheap to pay someone just to look at it. I wouldn't be opposed to paying someone to look at it if they will fix it and take off the charge for the diagnostic. If I can't fix it before it gets any colder I'll have to shell out the cash for the dealer, but that always hurts my wallet so bad.

If both hoses going to the firewall are hot I would suspect the blend door.

Like stated above if the heater hoses are hot there is either a problem with the blend door or the cable from the dash to the blend door lever is off or broken,If you look up under the dash from the passenger side you should be able to see the blend door cable & lever look at them while turning the temp control & see if they are moving?

Thanks for the advice. So i've done a little bit more research on this. Tis seems to be a common problem for 97-06 Wranglers. The dealership said it would be around $1000 to fix it. I quickly decided that if I can't fix it myself I will be trading in next summer. It sounds like it is more labor intenseive than anything. The service tech said the main reason it costs so much is because of the time involved. I saw a quick fix on ebay for around $120. This is the link.

The high cost is due to the labor involved. I was told they would have to remove the dash and all of it components. They said it be an all day job.
