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.

I just brought this truck and when I drive it over 60mph the whole front starts to shake like it is about to brake. Any clue as to what it could be?

What you have is called death wobble. begin with properly balanced tires. Generally the most frequent cause of the wobble is a bad ball joint,(check first) track bar bushing or elongated track bar mount hole. It can also be caused by steering box becoming loose on the chassis or a combination of slightly loose steering components, any of which alone would not matter. The steering damper (sideways shock on steering linkage) is often blamed for the wobble. It can be damaged by the wobble but it will not cause it. Replacing it may eliminate the problem for a week or so but it will return as soon as the damper fails again.

There is a wobble in the steering wheel between 80 and 90 km/h what could it be?

A steering vibration at high speeds is usually a result of front tire imbalance. A loose or worn front suspension or steering component can sometimes cause a vibration as well. You should check over all the joints (ie: tie rods, ball joints, track bar etc) and if that checks out have the front tires balanced.

2000 jeep gc laredo 4x4 4.7 auto The front end shakes

if it shakes over 50 miles per hour, it could be your front tires need balancing. and check your ball joints while you are at it. or king pins if it has that. (they are different from ball joints but serve the same purpose.)

I have a 1997 jeep grand cherokee with a 4.5 inch lift on it and i got the death wobble what can it be i change on the steering caponents and the track bar and upper and lower controil arm that are adj now...

Sounds like a bad steering box. I could spend a lot of time trying to explain why, however that wouldn't help. Jack it up and turn the key so that you can turn the wheels. Check the idler arm for play. But I have a '93 and it solved the problem.

The front end gets the death wobble replaced lower control arms steering sector and the 2 bars going from side to side

Have you replaced the panhard rod, the one from the chassis to the axle, the bushes if worn can give you that fault. Also how are the hub ball joints, if you have worn ball joints, that can do it as well.
Hope this helps

likely a track bar...Have you tried slowly jacking up the front end. As geometry of components changes you may find one point where it lines up.

A very good possibility is a bad trac bar in the front-end, also how old is the front steering damper?
