4 cyl there's your problem

Chips are worthless on the TJ's and the 4 cyl. You most likely need to regear!

There is not really anything you can do to improve the performance of the 4 banger shy of gears. Since you say it has a lift and bigger wheels I would check to see if the previous owner had it regeared. I doubt they did. I'm running a 4 cylinder 5 speed with 31 inch tires on the stock 4:10 gears and I noticed a decent power loss with just those small tires.
