help!! current draw/voltage drop issue

i have a 99 jeep cherokee (xj) that starts and runs fine untill you use ANY electrical accessory like windows, mirrors, lights, reverse lights, brake lights, stereo ect, it loses spark and stalls if you dont catch it in time. Also happens while driving under throttle and immediately loses spark.
battery, alternator, and all grounds have been checked and are in perfect working condition. ive almost given up. please help me. thinking its maybe a weird ckp issue.
any info would seriously help.

What is your battery voltage with engine off, running and during the issue (like opening a window)?
How was the battery and alternator checked?
Have you cleaned all the ground wires ? Both sides?
