Additional upgrades

Anyone know what other modifications i need to make to my 92' Wrangler YJ after installing a 41/2" lift and 33" tires? it'll only get up to 60 mph on the freeway in 5th at 1,500 RPM's.

What engine? what gears? How does it do if you drop back to 4th gear?

Sounds like you need to regear the axles to get your power back.

Regear the axles and install a Slip Yoke Eliminator.
