Ok so I picked up my 1995 XJ in August of 2012 after my 93 Explorer cracked yet another flex plate, and I've loved my jeep. I've had ages issues with it since I picked it up, mostly some issues misfiring and bogging down, which I'm still working out, but nonetheless, here's my XJ.

I'm still working out whatever the p.o. Did with these wires. Does anybody know where these go?

This black male clip has no female that I can find. It's located by the battery.

This one looks like its supposed to run where the line for the horn does on the passenger side, but has no home.

And finally, this one was laying down in front of the drivers side headlamp, but also has no home.

Car makers pretty much use the same wiring harness in all different models of their vehicles. My XJ has some connectors that don't have mates too. Look at them close. By the look of the dirt and grime, they have been disco'd sense the thing came off the lot brand new.

one of those wires might be for a/c and I know for sure the second one is for your 2nd horn

Ok so one of the major problems that I'm having with my XJ, is this weird bogging down that occurs whenever the weather is warm, or really hot out. It only happens when the vehicle is at running temperature and I can't figure it out. Thus far I've changed :

Spark plugs
Wires
Distributor and cap
Rotor button
Catalytic converter
O2 sensor
Coolant temperature sensor
Rewired the battery

And it still would bog down. And it doesn't just bog down when I give it gas, it almost cuts off, and then will gain power, the lose power, then gain power, then lose power again.

And yesterday I replaced the throttle position sensor.

Any thoughts?

my friends 5spd had a bogging down problem. we replaced his exhaust manifold because it was cracked and a few sensors and it fixed the problem.. I think the cracked manifold was doing it somehow cause it was fine after that.
