4.88s would be ideal for the 4cyl automatic with 33" tires.

rrich Gears are always a good thing - but having the tank worked on did not make your gear ratio worse.

If it is a kink in the line - a fuel pressure test will show it. At the speeds it's starving the pressure will drop.

the 4.0 sounds like maybe a coil rail's going bad.

Bvblzr you don't state if this is new or not. If it is an on going problem your most likely suffering from 2.5itis. It is compounded by the addition of a power robbing automatic trans. My YJ has the same problem but it is a stick. The fix it to install a 5.3 LS motor and call your mechanic.
Seriously you have 3.73's and 33's with an auto. That is a tough combo for a 2.5 to push. Gears are gonna be your friend. Maybe 4.88's

My 97 4cyl Auto is doing the same... Taking off is great. Getting up to 50pmh seems like a choir and once I hit 60 as soon as I go up slight upgrade, back to 40-45.

1997 4cyl, Auto, 33" tires, 4" lift, stock 3:73 gears.

loss of power at certain speeds

I have a 2002 jeep wrangler and all the power "seems" to be there from stop to go or low speeds but when i get to mid to higher speeds a lot of times it barely pics up speed or even looses some on bigger hills. not sure if its just a fuel filter problem or something more serious? It seemed to start doing this after i had my fuel tank lowered due to evaporative emissions system problems.
