PO 141 and PO 138(O2 Sensors)

Well i threw A check engine light the other day about 100 miles out of nashville. I got the codes read today and they came out to be PO141 and PO138. Some research told me these were the O2 sensors. But before i replace them i want Jeepforums take on what i should do. Which code is which o2 sensor? And I know i should avoid Boshe sensors, so what do yall recommend im on a very tight budget.

Both codes are related to the rear O2 sensor behind the cat. Check your wiring to make sure you don't have a short. Then, erase the codes and see if they come back. If they come back, I'd replace the rear O2 sensor as it may have an internal short.

Also, check the fuse/relay under the hood. I had five parts stores and three dealerships swear to me that I needed three new O2 sensors...turned out it was a blown fuse.
