Slow acceleration, no more that 2000 RPMS -1992 Wrangler 4.0 I6

Good morning!

I've been trying to troubleshoot my most recent Jeep acceleration etc. issue.

The Problem: Accelerates super slow, will barely push 2000 RPMs while in gear and but in Neutral will rev up just fine; Will not go over 40 MPH.

So Far: I've removed the exhuast/ CAT / O2 sensor that provided a little boost in acceleration in 1st and 2nd, but 3rd - 5th are still dead. I replaced the fuel filter & pump last year, and fuel delivery doesn't seem to be the issue.

Any suggestions?? This is (not) driving me crazy!! any help would be much appreciated, thank you !

If I understand your post correctly you have checked the exhaust and converter for obstructions. Have you checked the intake? I have found everything from shop towels to rats nests plugging up air intakes.
