Jeep Cooling System Issue

Hey there, I have been having a lot of issues with my 98 Cherokee. Bought it a year ago this month and as I was driving it home for the first time she overheated and proceeded to pour a Niagara Falls of coolant from underneath my front end. This struck me as odd because the water pump and radiator had been replaced that year. Took it to the mechanic and he said nothing was wrong (bull crap). Anyways I kept having issues with her over heating and spitting coolant out from underneath the radiator cap, finally I replaced the thermostat and the radiator cap twice. By this time the weather is already cooled down and she was running at the average normal 210. Winter hits and I realize my heater doesn't work (it was a very cold drive to and from work). Summer hit this year and I realized I had a new issue with my cooling system. Found a leak around the lower radiator hose. Replaced the hose last night and realized whoever had replaced it before me had put it on BACKWARDS! Put it on correctly this time did a radiator flush at the same time as well and thought I'm golden. Wrong. Got home after fixing it she was still spitting coolant out from underneath the radiator cap. Did some research and found someone who had the exact same issue and found out that their overflow tube was clogged. So in high hopes I replaced it today and cranked my A/C up to see if it worked. Nope. So now I am at a loss. Someone give me any pointers please. The only thing I'm dreading is that the radiator is shot.

Here is a list of everything that has been replaced on it by me since last August 2015:
Thermostat 2x
Radiator cap 2x
Control Temperature Sensor
Lower Radiator Hose
Overflow Tube

I live Phoenix, AZ. Temps of 110 in summer.

This should probably be moved to the XJ technical forum.

I can fix anything. Usually because I've broken it before.
