Upper control arms
 
2000 wrangler 4.0 auto, 4" lift, vibration on take off, while driving hwy speed it's all over the road, it rides very rough, I know the upper control arm bushings are worn and they are all still the factory ones, I was thinking about putting rear upper adjustable arms and oem on the front, since money is tight, what would be the best setup for a budget price?

The pinion angle may not be right due to the lift. Did you install a new drive shaft with the lift or a skid plate drop? Too steep of an angle on the drive shaft will cause vibrations.

SYE + CV shaft + upper adjustable control arms. the SYE is useless without adjustable uppers...and similarly, there isn't much point in adjustable uppers unless you've got a reason to adjust the pinion...aka a SYE.

1) What model and brand shock absorbers are installed?
2) What size tires are you running and, precisely, what air pressure is in them?
3) Do you have a SYE/CV driveshaft installed?
4) Has your rear pinion angle been adjusted properly? Are you certain?
5) If no SYE/CV driveshaft, how far has your t-case been dropped and have you also added a set of 1" taller motor mounts?

It has the stage 1 pro comp 4" lift kit, with the cheap pro comp shocks, no sye/cv, the t-case has been dropped a little over an inch, it seems to be getting worst and the ride is getting rougher! Oh and as far as I know the motor mounts are stock!
