Question about 1987 Jeep Cherokee
When I turn on the headlights everything else dims (parking, brake, running, dash) but no headlights. If turn them off everything is fine. Any ideas???
This sounds like you have a bad ground distirbution point is weak and the headlights draw right off this heavily

Probably a stupid question, but does the car start? Have you checked the battery for proper voltage? (and charge rate). Other than that, I'd suspect a poor ground somewhere causing excessive resistance & draw on that system.(headlamps draw far more than dash lights so power is used up there first)
