my 94 grand cherokee larado has seen its better days, iv decided to fix ALL the probs, and have done alot of work to it over the past 6 months, replaced/fixed transmission, transfer case, alt, battery, injectors, computer, brakes, shocks, rotors, idle pos sen. The problem i cant seem to find a cure for will start and idle fine. will run perfectly up to 3000rpm then it sputters. lack of power. im stumped. im not a certified mech but i can figure out most everything...but not this time.....HELP PLEASE....

could be a fuel issue. get a fuel pressure gauge and hook to inspection value on fuel rail and watch your pressures.
is this 3000 rpms under load (like while driving) or in park/neutral?

I would agree that it sounds like a fuel problem. Have you replaced the fuel filter/fuel pump?
