Question about Cars & Trucks
Your Jeep should only have one serpentine belt. That belt powers the alternator, water pump, and power steering pump.
You should not drive without the belt. I would guess one of the pulleys locked up and melted the belt.

is the radiator fan coming on and staying on, or not coming on at all?? i was having the same problem, and it turned out to be a fan relay switch which was pretty easy to replace. around 40 bucks, and maybe 30-45 mins.

It looks like you may have 2 serpentine belts, but when one fails it almost always gets tangled into the any other belts and they all end up coming off, all of the problems u listed are driven off your belts, replace the belts and hope that the overheat didn't cause any damage to the engine. And yes you have what are called serpintine belts and there is a tensioner for each..
