    It sounds like the front end is worn out. Your going to need to take it to a professional to determine for sure.

    There is only 1 item that I can think of that is user servicable. There is a stabilizer shock on some front ends that connects the ties rids to the frame in some manner. If it is worn out, it can cause this condition.

    Check and reply if you have further questions.

Sounds very much like a broken coil spring. On such a new vehicle that seems unlikely but it is possible. Another possibility is a blown seal in one strut. Again, not likely but possible. If you do a lot of off roading or possibly may have hit a curb or pothole hard enough it could have broken an already defective spring or blown a seal in a strut, causing this issue.

My 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee loses power and stalls when going up a steep hill on the freeway. It also several times the steering wheel has violently shaken when I hit a bump in the road. It almost felt...

You have two unrelated problems. the power loss can be from a variety of things. What you first need to do with that is have a scan done (many parts stores do that free)...then if you have codes stored, you at least have some direction to go in with that.
The shaking is called death wobble and also has many causes. The most common are bad ball joints or tires that are worn sufficiently so as to not have enough foreward momentum to not react to side loading from bumps. The same tire can still generally pass inspection but is no longer useful on your vehicle (usually with around two thirty seconds of remaining tread measured at the wear bars). Any wear in any of the front end steering components or bushings can also cause wobble...sometimes it is a cumulative effect of slight wear in several places totaling an unacceptable amount of overall play. If you just had brake work or new tires installed, sometimes improper torquing of the wheels can also cause that. If you don't see anything obvious have an experienced jeep tech look at it. It can be dangerous and is nothing to ignore or wait on.

I had a truck at work that did the same thing. Only if you hit a pothole. In my case the front tires were way out of balance. Hope it's something that simple.

The problem is your Steering stabilizer A good mechanic can change it you can buy it at a pep boys i bought mine for 80 dollars at a autozone here in california.

Steering stabilizer Needs to be changed supposely after every 50,000 miles. but all depends on the users i didnt change mine til after 80,000.

Shaking Car

Front end alignment. Worn and loose wheel,idler arm, tie rod ends , ball joints and or pitman arm. Have front end alignment and parts tested or get under unit and start moving the parts and see what is loose then replace it/them. Most likely is the idler arm.You will still have to have the front end realigned after relacing worn, loose, parts.
