a little problem any ideas

First off. I have an 01 wrangler Sahara with the 4.0 and an auto trans I have a 4" lift with a 1" body lift 4.56 gears front and rear Detroit lockers front and rear 35" tires k&n air filter highflow cat and muffler

Here's my problem I'm out wheeling in 2wheel drivei hit a small hill no problem I can do it in 2wheel drive I'm climbing it not losing traction but I'm slowing down I floor it and I'm still slowing down but my tires are not spinning I have traction just bogging down

Another discription is I'm in 4high I hit a small rock or dirt ledge maybe half the size of my tire I slowly drive up to it not to hit it to hard I hit it try to climb up it an the Jeep just sits there the tires don't spin the gas peddle is to the floor but the Jeep wont move

Any ideas on why my Jeep is bogging down like that it does just fine in 4low or 2low just not 4high I'm about to swap in a stick although it will make
it a little harder in the rocks which 90% of my wheeling is

What do the RPM's read? Is it shifting correctly on the street?

I change all my fluids regulerly transfer case was just rebuilt kinda I did the eye and installed the teralow and the transfer case has nothing to do with it in 2wheel drive I. Think it in the trans but not sure if its the torque converter or something else

make sure your trans fluid is good, no water in it. The torque convertor actually holds a high majority of the fluid, it takes a couple/few quarts in there to work right. Slipping like your explaining is the first sign of being low...
