front end vibration and steering wheel shake

I'm having an issue that's getting progressively worse. At first, it would only happen when I was braking from interstate speeds (like on at exit ramp). I thought brake rotor....but it doesn't do it every time I brake from those speeds (or when braking from any slower speed). Now my jeep will shake when I'm just decelerating by coasting and even occasionally when I'm just driving at a constant speed.

Does anyone have any ideas? Tie rod ends? Upper control arm bushings? Track Bar? Sway Bars?

Thanks everyone!

Id say wheel bearings or a broken belt in a tire.

Start with what you've already listed to seee if secure or tight and then I would say check the U-Joints in the front axles, Front Drivesahft Ujoints and Rear Drivesahft Ujoints. There should not be any play in the Ujoints.
