Does this issue occur when engine cold, warmed up or all the time?

Hello, are you there?

Have you checked for a clogged catalytic converter?

Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
no

The symptoms you are experiencing could be from a plugged exhaust not letting exhaust flow freely. That will result in backfire and boggins specially upon acceleration.

its not backfiring
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
never has

It can cause it to just bog too.

Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
how do you check that

To check for a plugged catalytic you will need a backpressure gauge. Another way to check is by loosening the catalytic converter inlet, then start the engine and check if issue persists.

what's the deal on tapping the cat to hear rattling?

That will only help if a piece of platinum is broken and loose. If it is melted and plugged you will not hear anything.

Ask Your Own Jeep Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
ok, what does a new cat cost usually?

A universal (weld on) catalytic approx 200-250$ and a direct fit(bolt on) catalytic approx 400-450$

if that is not the problem what else can it be? would the O2 sensor cause the bogging down?

o2 sensor cannot cause it to bog. You have already replaced the ususal culprits and checked the fuel pressure. Only scenarios left are clogged exhaust or timing. BUt timing will give you an issue at idle too, so i'm leaning more towards exhaust.
