isee they limit straped it on the front. They did that so it wont flex past the stock drive lines abilty and the needed Y pipe mod. To get the full ability of those shocks and lift it would need a front drive line and the ypip fixed.
I am not sure what you plan on the "going wheeling" side of owning a Jeep. But as a fellow AZ jeeper better keep it in 3 and under rated trails. Its not so much the lift that kills a warranty but wheeling it. Wheel it hard and about anything can be said to be " user abuse".
Tera flex makes fixed lenght arms? I noticed they put on "cam bolts" Those things can lead to wallowing out of the LCA mounts in Az rocky trails.
The shocks are most the cost of that lift and are over kill, for most people. It is the shock of most mall jeeps. They were intended for fast cycling as in off road racing. But Jeeps are not good at speed off road, to heavy.
All in all its a nice looking Jeep and the only one that needs to be happy is you.
See you out on the trails perhaps, a fellow AZ jeeper.
Did the dealer say that if you put on the lift it would void its warranty. If so thats a rather good sign they are not friendly to off road, no matter what is in righting, they can allways pull the "You did it".
It doesnt use cam bolts if you look closely you'll see it uses heavy squared washers to help prevent egging of the factory holes.I have the same lift and it will go anywhere I want to go.
The limiter straps are there to protect the shocks, they stop the travel just before the shock maxs out so it doesn't kill those high dollar SOBs
With my stock drive line and the shocks/ limiter straps off the sway bar stops the front end from falling out and the drive line still turns. The kit moves the crossover pipe that hits the front shaft down and back enough to miss the shaft at full droop.
Great looking jeep, dude. Who the hell cares what the Internet badasses think. Your jeep. Your cash. BFD. Enjoy the rig.
I didnt need to put on 33"MTs since 95% of my honest usage is on road. Yes, it's a huge waste of money & resources. Yet, nobody critiques that!
Unless you own/drive Hitmoney or some of the absolutely over the top badass JK (which all get trailered to events, at last check) you probably drive your jeep as a Daily Drver too.
Internet tough guys, bench pressing their keyboard, making ego strong, wife/girlfriend sleeping in next room over. Yeah tough guys!!!

It's a three in not a three and a half. The mopar kit is a teraflex prerunner with fox shocks and a set of fixed length rubber on both ends control arms. The teraflex version has adjustable arms with johnnie joints. Other than that they are the same.
I have reservoir shocks in the front too, with the reservoirs attached to the main shock body as well.
A helpful hint is those shocks will turn just due to the fact there is nothing preventing them from rotating.
I ran a long zip tie around my shock and connected reservoir and the shock housing so they would not rotate.
Of course I thought of that after I saw mine turn (when doing offroading with good articulation of my front axle) and the hose clamp was crimped due to the tire hitting the shock and forcing it to turn further.
If you need a picture of what I am talking about I will take one and attach here.
