Death wobble and no power!

I have a 2000 Jeep Wrangler TJ with a list of upgrades. Also, that leads to a list of problems. At any speeds that I drive, my car shakes the hell out of me. IT also squeeks a ton. Despite having a steering stabilizer, lower control arms, brand new 35" tires and a re-alignment and balance, it hasn't helped one bit. My 2.5L engine is no help. My acceleration is awful and can max around 70 MPH. I have a air aid cold air intake too, and that doesnt help. I was thinking about investing in a superchip. Any suggestions for either problems?

What gears are you running? The power add ons are a waste of money IMO.

33's and the 4cly need 4.88's..thus even deeper with 35's to get back close to stock. As for the wobble..at all speeds is not good. check your trac bars.. if they are stock getting adjustable one's might help if you can post some picks of your suspension front rear etc..front side etc..will give us a better idea of what you have.

If you have 35's and have not done gears or calibrated your speedo, 70 mph is actually more like 85-90 mph. Upside to that is the clock is turning slower, too. Check your track bar and your front brakes. A sticky brake will squeal and cause death wobble at all speeds.

Had similar issue. Replaced track bar and steering stabilizer. Then found our rotors were shot and calipers seized. Replaced all got alinment. All is swell:-)
