jeep died going up a hill

well today i took the top off my jeep and went for a ride to show my friend how cool this thing is and after driving for about 20 minutes it lost all its power it just seemed to die

when i push the pedal down it wont even rev in nuetral anymore just boggs down and tries to stall i got it to rev to like 1000rpm and i got it home in 4low doin like 3 mph in 5th gear

the crazy thing is that it didnt overheat or anything didnt loose oil pressure or nothin i also got this real weird rattle comin from the cat that just started after it bogged down

its 84cj7 with a 4cy from an 83 if that helps anyone it has a t-5 tranny also

That sounds like a plugged catalitic (sp) coverter. I had a car that acted like that and that was the problem.
