I had the exact same problem, it turned out to be the CV Boot. It was pretty pricey, $450+ to replace the CV boot. We found a local independent auto repair shop and they replaced the whole front axle with a remanufactured axle which included a remanufacture of both of the CV boots, for only $250. $150 for the parts and $100 for the labor.

We own both a 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee and a 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee, and we are the original owners. I can't tell you how much money we could have saved repairing our 2000 Jeep Grand Cherokee if we had known then what we know now.
When you have an engine or transmission problem don't pay for any repairs until you have replaced both your TCM and PCM. These parts can be purchased online, for about $125 each and best of all you can install them yourself.
We have had a huge variety of intermittent error codes and mechanical problems over the years including but not limited to: multiple fuel injector failure, limp mode transmission, engine electrical failure, alternator failure, transmission slipping and/or hard shifting, transmission won't engage, shifter stuck in park, engine won't start, engine quits while driving and the list goes on... The Jeep Dealership said our car was haunted, no kidding!
All of the above issues were fixed when we replaced both the TCM and PCM. It was easy to do ourselves and now we love our 2000 Jeep again. NOTE: The 1997 Jeep was not affected, all of the problems where with the 2000 Jeep as it has a lot more computer controlled components.
Hopefully, this will help you. If it does, let me know and spread the word
