Well, I ran out to do a little business and you guys asked for a pic. So here it is. It looks a little goofy with the factory rubber on it.

Mind you I still have to order up some wheels and tires. I'm thinking Method rims and 12.5 tires.
Hide that thing in the garage! :)

I’m still talking with the dealership. Like I said, my brother works there and we all have access to the dealer login. I know the parts manager personally and we looked up the part again and they installed the kit that the computer says was for the 2 door(according to the part #). It’s the part # for the 4 door, but the mopar part locater also says it’s the same for the 2 door. In other words, were still working on it. I have no doubt we’ll get to the bottom of it and the dealership will make it right.
I’ll keep ya posted.
Now off to get some wheels and rubber ordered!
I’ll be posting some pics with my new tires when I get ‘em.

I can help with a simple google search:

4 door with a 3.6L part number is: 77072395AB
2 door with a 3.6L part number is: 77072396AB

Yeah, we’ve been there and done that. But when the dealerships computer pulls up the part number for my vin, it’s 77072430ab, which clearly says on google that it’s for the 4 door 2.0?????
We’ll talk directly to mopar tomorrow.

It is an issue, because the lift is WAY too high, it will drive horribly, you will have driveshaft issues, your COG is comedy levels, and the performance in general will just be terrible. You need to remove that lift and install the right one.
This - you will regret running a 4dr lift on a 2dr - it will rattle your teeth out of your month, your driveline angles are probably at the point of breaking something - good thing a dealership installed it - when stufff starts breaking it will be on them.

This is part of the instructions that come in the box.

Ah...this seems to show its the springs AND shocks that need to be different for every model and engine combo, if I'm reading it right, and all the other parts are the same.

Yeah, I checked all the parts and they are for the 4 door with 2.0. The main difference is the springs and shocks, but we know that

OMG the caster angle has got to be in the trash now. Wow. How does that not drive like garbage? :facepalm:

Will be interesting to see how this one ends up. Subscribing....
