Normal operating temps are between 195 and 210, so 220 is a little high. All the Cherokees I've had experience with run at a constant 210, unless pulling hard up a hill, in which case they may exceed that to about 220 - 225 temporarily.

What do you mean by it leaks like it's overheating? Is it boiling over and the overflow bottle is overflowing? Or is there a little puddle of antifreeze under the engine when you park like your water pump is leaking?

what year is your jeep ? if you don't have a normal rad cap and you have the little pressure bottle up by your passenger side door go get a new rad cap .

if you have another car with a 14lbs rad cap and you have the normal open cooling system then borrow it for a day or something or just go buy a new rad cap.

start there , mine did that when i first got it . ripped through some deep alkalie sand and as soon as i stopped it would overheat , just a bad cap .
