The dreaded death wobble". Check this video which I always watch as he goes into detail how to really fix it. A lot of info is also available at jeep forums. Check jeepforums.com too. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gVJx8buTE8I
How are the tires wearing, could you need an alignment? Is the anti sway bar broken? When I hear that you have a clunking noise while accelerating I want to blame your CV joints, are you sure they are fine?
Steering dampner (thing that looks like a shock absorber mounted sideways) can cause this. Most good alignment shops will check front end components for wear (shame on them if they didn't) but sometimes what seems like "acceptable play" if added to other components in similar condition can add up to a total of unacceptable...If dampner does not help, I'd start eliminating anything with any wear. A side-note to this is about caster angle...I never like factory camber settings...it does make steering easier but I prefer setting caster at least one full degree (+) past factory settings. This makes the vehicle more stable at higher speeds and often eliminates tendency of wheels to wobble. (won't go into full details, but it's why you can ride a bicycle with "no hands" if you turn the fork around and try that you will land on your ****!) If adjustable, it involves placing equal thickness shims on both sides, behind rear of front lower control arms. Changing this may alter toe in, so that should be re-set.
