No more oomph?

Hey everyone, I have a 91 yj that used to have a 4 inch lift with 31x10.5 tires and it did great on the trails! Currently it has a 5.5 inch lift with 33x12.5 tires and, it feels like it lost a lot if power which was expected, but on the trail it sucks and can't climb anything with a lot of shutter in the transmission . Could this be my drive line or clutch. Gerard I'm sure are stil could this be the problem?

I would lean towards gearing as a big part of that problem.

can you put the 31's back on and see? Or borrow a set?
Gotta stand by all you cool guys... Maybe it'll rub off?!

After a point your rear drive shaft u joints will start to bind. If you don't have a sye and are flexing you may be there.
