Loss of power when accelerating

Hey im new to this but this forum has helped me out on alot of things. but this baffles me.

I just put on a rough country 3.25" lift and 32x11.5 tires on stock rims on my jeep. after relocating the traction bar and reinforcing the new hole with some grade 8 washer welded on and doing the 1" transfer case drop to remove the drive line vibration.

I took it for a test drive on my way to work. everything was fine till i tried accelerating on the on ramp for the highways. I was at a deast stop, got up to about 20 Mph and then it was almost as if i let off the gass and got back on. it got to the point i couldnt get it over 5 mph. then it went away. but if i got on the gass anymore than babying it, same problem. not sure if this is because of the lift or some underlieing problem.

please help!!

probably an underlying problem, the bigger tires just put more of a load on the engine and is making it more noticable than before.

Any error codes? I have to replace the 02 Sensor and after researching my loss of power. Mine seem to happen more when I am going on a incline.

I don't know about your motor problems but it would seem to me if you welded grade 8 washers you would take all the hardness out of them and basically end up with a mild steel type of washer.
