I had similar problems a few weeks back ,not on a cherokee but a wagoneer. Are you running disc front and drum rear or disc/disc ? And did you bleed the master cylinder?

probably lucky you had any brakes at all. I put my hydroboost and master together when I was building my buggy and got excited when I got close to finishing and forgot to put the rod in mine. Was a real head scratcher there for a bit.
