This may be to engining running rich , the first thing is to have the computer scanned for codes,you may have a bad o2 sensor or a cylinder misfiring due to a bad sparkplug or wire or if it has coil overplug design it may have a bad coil boot,the diffrence is one has plug wire and the other desige has a coil going right over the plugs,so start with the scan, autozone scans for free, hope this helps.

Engine smoking, clicking sound, and over heating shaking

You may have blown a head gasket. smoking is fluids (oil and antifreeze) getting into the cylinder and burning.
SHAKING- When the antifreeze and oil enter the cylinder they don't burn well, causing the plug to foul.
Check your radiator and see if the antifreeze looks like chocolate milk, or check your oil dip stick for the same.
pull your spark plugs and inspect the ends for oil and or antifreeze

I have a 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee that when running 45mph shakes like crazy.I have replaced the track bar, axls and everything in between and still no improvement what else could it be

Have you checked/replaced the ball joints? That usually will fix the problem but there are other causes as well. If the track bar mount hole is oblong that can cause a problem as can wheels that are not torqued to specifications. In extreme cases, adding some positive caster over factory alignment specs can also help.
The steering damper (sideways shock attached to steering linkage) is often blamed for shake but it gets damaged by the shaking and is not the cause) check that and replace if needed AFTER you have fixed the problem.

1999 jeep cherokee making noise like running mud tires & shakes at about 40 to 50 mph

Have wheel bearings and c/v joints checked. Your description sounds like bearings, but I'd know better if I could hear it myself. Try to isolate the noise to a particular wheel to make sure it's not a differential or transfer case noise.

My 99 jeep is shaking when i drive over 45mph

if it is shaking all the time it is more than likely bad tires or they are out of balance, if only when braking then it will be warped rotors.
