Strange Acceleration Problem When A/C Turned On

Hello Everyone. I just joined the forum and am stoked to meet you all.

I've got a 2005 Wrangler and it's an awesome car when the A/C is off. However, on a hot day, when I turn the A/C on, the entire vehicle rumbles and shakes. The gearshift shakes like crazy, and it's nearly impossible to accelerate from a still position. Turning off the A/C fixes everything. When I'm on the highway, turning on the A/C makes it very difficult to accelerate even slightly when in 6th gear. Hot weather magnifies the problem immensely. I live in Florida so A/C is a must.

If I'm driving in town, turning on the A/C makes my car rumble and shake but if I'm moving it's ok. When I come to a stop sign or traffic light I must turn off the A/C to accelerate and then turn it back on once moving.

Any help is greatly appreciated. Been living with this for months and it's awful.
