Steering Stabilizer?

Tires balanced?

Check bushings. Check that everything is torqued down.
Not too keen on YJs so I can't comment on the lack of Track Bars.... On TJ I'd say "slap some on there."

Exactly that is why I said, if it were a TJ I would say "blah and blah."

Alright look at tie rod ends. Ubolts. And the leafs in general.
Are the front tires worn hinky at all? If so, that could be the culprit.

Just because tires were balanced a month ago does not mean a weigh didn't fall off. If you've been off roading and one has fallen off, the 55-60 mph range is the most common time to notice out of balance wheels. Everything else, ubolts, ball joints steering stabilizer, will be noticeable at more speeds than just at 55-60. Plus if you live in a neighborhood with really bad juvenile delinquents they may have played an old joke on you and taken them off! If this is the case wait for the zip tie around your drive shaft. You'll be looking for a drivetrain issue for weeks.

I agree with these two. Check your pitman arm also. Make sure the nut is tight and that your arm isn't sliding on your shaft.

nice find. Always check your wheel hubs to though, jack 'em up in the front one at a time and make sure the tire has no play up/down/left/right.

X2. If he didn't say that I was going to. Wheel hubs are def something you should check every so often. If one of those gets bad enough to shake your Jeep, at highway speed it could be the end of you and you Jeep real fast. I had one fail on me going 65mph down the highway a few months ago and almost bit it myself.
