And you are sure it isn't a transmission issue?

Sounds like a tranny issue to me. Any gear ratio the 4.0 will get over 60 especially if you have a 5 speed

If you can't accelerate past 60 mph then you have a huge mechanical problem somewhere.

Nvm you have an auto. Yeah, trans issue. Not rearend. If it was a rearend issue it would be messed up all mph.

Could also be a combination of bad U joints and bad cats.

if it is the trans that would explain why its jumping into each gear, but its still throwing the one tire fire.
