Certainly a flush & fill would help, but if your going that far, you might as well have thermostat done too, as it doesn't appear to be your problem at this point, but why take the chance of it being a problem later. Make sure you ask them to be sure to reverse flush the heater core, it works better at dislodging anything that is clogging it up.

I'm sorry but I'm not sure what exactly the issue is. You stated the Jeep overheated, correct? Then you stated that you had previously taken the Jeep in for work on the a/c. Was this previous to the overheating? And which fan motor are you referring to? The interior vent fan motor or the cooling fan?
The cooling fan has nothing to do with the a/c. It may help increase it's efficiency but the a/c will work fine with out the cooling fan. If you are having trouble with the engine cooling fan after the work you need to return there and make them fix it. You must also remember that the coolant fan works intermittently when the temp reaches the cut-in an cut-out setting. As far as the plug on the fan itself it is a simple connector and easy to replace.
The thing that is of most concern should be, how is the vehicle running since it overheated?
The liberty has twin overhead cam aluminum heads. These are susceptible to warping caused by overheating. If you are need to constantly check and fill the radiator due to overheating you may have other issues other then the Coolant fan.
Please repost with what motor was repaired (a/c vent or cooling fan).
Also did you notice a sweet smell to the smoke when the Jeep overheated?

It should be ok for now but it sounds like the exhaust either has split or has a hole in it, the heat maybe because the heat sheild is damaged or missing, you should get it to a regular garage as the repair is unlikely to cost much.
sometimes the brackets just come off and need retightening.
Hope this helps

If your fan is not fixed mount but free spinning, the clutch on the mounting center of the fan is slipping too much, in other words there is not enough fan rotation at higher RPM,s
