well i cant seem to get any antifreeze to pump through the hoses leading to the heater, it seems to be pumping through both radiator hoses but not the heater hoses does anybody have any kind of advise? also would it be harmful to drive without any thing going through the heater hoses?
thanks

Couple of things come to mind here. I have replaced a lot of thermostats for this problem. Also because the radiators on TJs are notorious for leaking, fluid could just be low or stop leak has been added and the heater core is now plugged. No danger to run with out fluid flowing through heater core, you just won't have heat.

Thermostats are easy and cheap to replace, so if the anti freeze level is ok I would start there. If that is not the case try to back flush the heater core with water.
