New From Wonderful WV

I'm now a proud owner of a '94 Wrangler with the 2.5L. I bought it with a 1.5" lift and 33's. I'm new to Jeeps so going from a small car that will do 0-60 in 7-8 seconds to this feels painful. It seems as though my 4th gear has absolutely no torque! Or at least it feels that way. There's a lot of mountains around here as well and one of my weekly drives is on a mountain into VA. Needless to say my gas mileage sucks, too. I'm sure because of the added lift, and most likely bigger tires, maybe, that I may need to re-gear it? Can someone help me out on what may need to be done?

You'll never get amazing gas mileage or lots of power out of the 2.5L. That said, while those around you are going fast, you can go... anywhere.
