Hi there iask,
I could call myself ianswer. My name is Mike. I've got a 91 wrangler that used to do the same thing.
With me it was an air pocket. The temp sensor responds to a heavy medium like water, not air. As an air pocket circulates and comes into contact with the sensor, your gauge will fluctuate.
I'm sure you checked the coolant levels already, but hear me out. What I'm suggesting is like chicken soup, it can't hurt, it can only help.
Just because a radiator looks full, doesn't mean it is. Air pockets can exist in the engine and heater core. We're going to get rid of any.
Checking the coolant level.
Remember: Good things come to those who Rate.

i have a 2002 jeep grand cherokee i had the same problem when i would apply my brakes when the headlights were on my brake lights would go out, i found that my bulbsocket was not making good contact with the socket housing, if you notice when you take off a bulb, look at the light fixture where you unscrewed your breaklight bulb you will notice 3 medal contacts-they should be silver in the socket housing and like a copper on the socket bulb, in the socket housing their should be 2 silver contacts together and 1 by itself the one that looks by itself is making bad contact with the copper one thats by itself on the bulb, what you can do for a quick fix is; get a small piece of low cage wire or a thin piece of metal like copper stick that in to the bottom or top of that metal contact--i did it through the bottom leave the wire or piece of medal sticking out enough for where it can get contact with the bulb (just a little wire is enough to make contact, now screw the bulb on and test it---it will work----i did it to mine, if you need more assistance let me know firstname.lastname@example.org
