SOURCE: FRONT END
Drive the car in a parking lot and make left and right hand turns.
If the noise goes away on either turn then the problem is a front hub bearing.
If the noise is still there, it could be possible front differential bearings.

You really need to get your Jeep off of the ground, preferably on fixed supports and have a friend help you with the troubleshooting since you need to be underneath to observe and they need to man the steering wheel.
The problem you describe is severe and dangerous so finding the worn parts shouldn't be difficult; I have seen and heard 'clunks' while the steering was turned even slowly back and forth.
Whatever you replace however, you simply cannot do the final wheel alignment on your own. You are dealing with increments of degrees of toe- in or out, caster, camber too, and these must be correct or uneven tire wear and lousy steering tracking (unsafe at any speed) will be the result.
I believe a good investment for all of our vehicles (family-wide) is the purchase of a Haynes or Chilton service manual. Sometimes you can save a few bucks on eBay but none of them are over $30 abd worth every penny.
We have your same year of GC and the Haynes manual number for it is:
Good luck and don't forget to actually finish tightening (or torquing) those nuts and bolts!

This sounds like there is something worn in the steering. If it is a rack & Pinion steering the rack could be worn out. It could also be the CV joints to the front hubs. Regardless it does not sound safe. Take it to an independent mechanic, NOT THE DEALER, and have it inspected. There typically is not charge to inspect/identify the problem.

Sounds like it is in 4 wheel drive mode.
If you have a switch to disconnect the 4 wheel drive it may not be working.
If the vehicle is full time 4 wheel drive or computer controlled 4 wheel drive you have most likely a locked in full 4 wheel drive mode situation.
Not good on dry pavement.
