Jerks when I accellerate uphill

(2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee)
On the freeway, trying to pass someone when going uphill. There is thudding underneath and It won't accellerate even though it's 8 cylinder. I have to pull back over into the lane I was in. I just had the transmission checked and they said it was fine.
How long have you had this problem? I just inherited this car. But I did not notice this problem on local trips in Oregon. I am now on a long trip back to California.
