Question about 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Running high over 2000 rpms doesnt seem to be shifting gears
Maybe the Throttle Position Sensor (TPS) if the computer thinks it is all the way to the floor then the gears would not shift until the engine RPM is real high. Also would not be able to determine the car is supposed to be idling. Do you have a check engine light? If you do this may come up on a scanner.

Check the trans fluid level first. To do this have the car running at operating temp check the level if low adjust to proper level and recheck. If thats not it I will help u trouble shoot it further. Sounds like a bad torque converter.

I work in a transmission and torque converter remanufacturing plant and have seen this many times! I hate to tell you that your transmission is shot! There is metal in the fluid and some of it got caught in a solenoid not letting fluid through to shift the gears. You will need a rebuild! About $2500 dollars. Of course if you in Pittsburgh, Pa. area I could do it for about half that. Any questions e-mail me at email@example.com

get a filter and fluid change in the transmission.
that 5 speed automatic is tricky.
do a code scan and see if there is a vacuum leak telling it to shift too late
