Id look at the headlight switch and do some voltage tests to see whats coming out of there. Pay close attention to any wires which look like someone was in there already.People can mess stuff up faster and better than the vehicle can by itself!

There's a small space behind inside fender. You can get your hand in there to grab and twist the back of the bulb to release it. You need a flashlight.

Jeep Grand Cherokees are famous for this problem. Tell me about it, I have had 3 (2001, 2004, 2006). The connections on these vehicles are not of the best quality. I have not had to deal with '06, but '01 and '04 were constantly going out.
There are two main causes (you can change the bulbs as many times as you like and they will only last a couple of weeks, with luck more than that). Check the end of the cables that connect to the brake lights, sometimes they tend to "burn" and short, and need to be changed. The most common cause is the contacts of the bulb holder to the light housing assembly, they tend to wear and/or get really dirty, these you can buy very inexpensive from your local Mopar parts dealer.
Since you have a problem with the 3rd brake light also, I would be more inclined to check the wiring.

This means you have a short. I am assuming you are talking about the fog light fuse. Does this fuse blow whether the fog lights are off? or just when turned on?
If the fuse blows when the switch is off the switch is bad too. If the fuses only blows when the switch is turned on you have a short in the wiring or bulb.
I don't know if you have test equipment so first I would say to remove both driving bulbs from their sockets and see if there is corrosion. Fix that problem if there is corrosion.
Then install a fuse without the bulbs and see if the fuse blows. If you have a test light you can bridge the fuse panel without putting a fuse in. If there is a connection you have a hot wire grounding. If there is no problem install one light, fuse or bridge the fuse holder and see if 1 light works. Try each side. This way you can isolate the problem. Then visibly inspect wiring.
