I stopped by my dealer lot and saw this 2-Door Sting-Gray Rubicon and pulled up next to it, seems it sits a little higher than mine?? Anyone else notice this with theirs?? Both vehicles were parked on a small incline, tried both sides. I wish both would have been on flat ground. Not sure if it is just the angle??

All stock from what I could tell, red rubicon shocks, no fox shocks. Same tires.

Yours has probably settled a bit as well as 4 doors carry more weight. Also, new ones only have 4 - 5 gallons in the tank or less.

It's not like a lift is universally better; on-road you get more fuel consumption and worse handling, and off-road you are more prone to rollover. On most of the hillside trails around me, you'd rather have a lower center of gravity than better approach/departure angles.

I have the same issue! I have a 2-door JLU Sport S and the 2" Mopar lift was installed by the dealer. I was at my local 4WP shop and they had a customer who had the same model as mine who got the same 2" lift. His set higher than mine and the only thing I could think of why is he had a set of Goodyear 35/12.50R17 MT and I have a set of Pro-comp AT Sport 315/70R16. Not I know mostly these tires are same size but what do you guys think? I uploaded some pictures as well.

That 2 dr sits nicely. I doubt the different bumpers account for the added height. More than likely, different springs. Only one way to see, crawl under and look at the tag on them.
