Looking into a RC long arm kit and confused

Ok so I been looking at adding a little height to my 03 overland snow drifts in Sodak keep hanging me up and was thinking I'll probably end up going with the Rough Country 4" Kong Arm but I read that it does not work on awd models now here's where I feel confused since I don't have a 2wd option only 4hi or 4lo is that considered awd or just all time 4wd plz b nice

The disclaimer is purely for RC's "protection" related (from what i can tell) to front drive shafts failing. There is nothing suspension wise different between a 247 (AWD) and a 242 (4WD) WJ and any lift will cause a WJ front DS with rzeppa joints to eventually fail. The kit will be fine on any WJ, and to answer your question, yes yours is AWD.

1999 WJ 4.0/6"/CLAs/33s/242SYE/ZJ Rad Swap
2006 LJ 4.0/2.5"/33s

Some, but not all (my '01 AWD doesn't have a Rzeppa shaft up front), AWD WJ's have Rzeppa joints in the front driveshaft. Those don't like to work at extreme angles for very long. The solution is to swap out the front driveshaft for one with the double-cardan joint.

You can see both types in this video, so you can compare to what you have now:
