Jolting/thrashing when at low speeds 1st/2nd gear.

I have a 95 YJ (stick shift) and whenever i drive slow like 1st/2nd gear and not putting much gas i get this terrible thrashing and jolting. The only way i could make it go away was to put in the clutch and let it out slowly giving it more gas. So the only real problem used to be parking lots, but it has gotten worse and now its almost every time im in low gears unless i punch the gas. Considering the prices of gas; I cant be punching the throttle. I thought it might be the throttle body, so i cleaned it up with some carb cleaner and that helps a little, but idk what else to do. Anyone got some advice? Do I need to clean the fuel injectors?

Worn motor mounts can do this also, the motor starts rocking and it gets all crazy until you jab the clutch.
Just an idea?

What he said^

I had this same problem and ended up being a trans mount. Yours sounds a bit more violent so it's probably a combination of the trans and motor mounts.
