Josh,
You're only talking 3 or 4 months and you're wanting to get out of your rut, sounds like a perfect time to have some fun for a few months. Since you are cutting, you'll want to maintain strength, but it's going to be hard if you start something new. I've often thought about what I'd do on a cut? I think I'd cut my 5/3/1 down to the bare bones and have a bunch of fun getting into better shape. Something like. . .

Monday:
Bench - 5/3/1 sets and reps
1 Arm Row - 10 sets of 3 reps
SAQ Training (sprints, jumps, bear crawls, etc.)

Wednesday:
Squat - 5/3/1 sets and reps
Sit-ups - 5 sets of max reps
Prowler pushes or Sled pulls

Friday:
Military Press - 5/3/1 sets and reps
Chin-ups - 20 weighted singles
Strongman Training (Farmers walk, Tire flipping, Sandbag drills, etc.)

And if you are really just sick of 5/3/1, then you can just take the Bench, Squat, and Press and work up to multiple triples or something like that.
