damndirtydog Yep, that will get er' shaking. Rented a Jeep last month in Moab. Same deal. About 40 mph and hit some frost heave in the asphault road and shook like a Mo-Fo until i was almost stopped. Check youtube, there's some good videos on there showing where to investigate areas that cause DW.
There's also some good threads on this forum. Just use the search box up top.
Let us know if you find the cause.

eiei2261 Did the torque on the ground but I,ll recheck it again.Stock trac bar.Front end guy did the ball joints.And religned it.

damndirtydog Recheck torque on trac bar. Did you torque the bar on the lift or on the ground, should be done on ground. Death wobble is usually attributed to something in the trac bar or brackets or fasteners for the trac bar. Start with retorque to 125 ft lb. Possibly something in the balljoint install but I've never replaced mine so can't help on that.
Maybe more info too for others to help.
What kind of trac bar stock or adjustable.
Why were these parts replaced. did u do a lift.
Good luck.
