Engine question???

I know, I know, what was I thinking (ok I wasnít at the time) I have a 2001, 2.5 wrangler se with a 4" lift and 32" tires, as everyone knows the thing has no guts ( I love her anyway) and we have talked about doing an engine swap and everyone I talk to says "itís not worth to trade it in", well its paid for and I am not about to have another car payment so any ideas how to boost some power into it. It has not been re-geared I have been told doing so with 4.88 will help out some donít know how true so any advise will be greatly appreciated.

If it were mine....I'd regear it to 4.88's and run the #$%* out of it! $1000-$1200 to have it regeared is alot cheaper than a monthly loan payment.
