Make sure that you always have enough coolant in your car so that it does not overheat. If it continues to overheat after you have filled your car up the the full line with the coolant, then you might have a leak in the coolant reservoir or a hose that is connecting it to the engine. If all of that fails then there is a problem with your engine and t is a very serious problem that you will have to take to the mechanic.

I just replaced the engine on my 1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. I replaced the V6 4.0 liter engine because of a blown radiator, although before removing the old engine I had the radiator replaced to help...

When an engine overheats, unless a huge quantity of coolant goes into a cylinder, (from a blown head gasket) it will generally be fine and can be re-started.. OK, so now you have another engine and that too is overheating?
First thing I'd check is the electric fan and if you have a mechanical one, check that too.
If the old engine severely overheated it could damage the transmission (both are cooled by the radiator)
If the transmission has an overheat switch on it, it can shut the engine down. On the other hand, the engine you just had installed may be bad.
I'd definitely have another shop check it out and see if there is anything wrong with the installation.
Before any good shop releases a car, especially after a large job such and an engine r&r, they test drive it and make sure everything is working. Somehow it doesn't appear that was done.
One important thing...When any engine begins to overheat, do not drive it. Driving can cause a small problem to "snowball" into a huge job!!!

Coolant flued is full but after engine got hot, it overheat.

the thermostat may be bad or the extreme is you have a head gasket issue. Any mechanic should be able to diagnose this in about 15 minutes.
If you know how to replace the thermostat I would do this first since its only a 10 or so dollar part.
