Doesn’t look like you have the new/modified coil bases - you still have a pretty good bow on the drivers side - nothing you can align except Toe without adjustable control arms/Track bars.

Yes, alignment needs to be checked, which it says to do in the instructions. The instructions even have the specs. The dealer is either cutting corners or not communicating very well that they checked it. My alignment was perfect before the lift, but I was delayed a day because their alignment guy was sick. The service manager wouldn't let it leave without ensuring proper alignment. 6,000 miles later, it drives perfectly with no unusual tire wear. I'd tell the SM you want it aligned to the specs in the instructions. It even gives new specs for headlight adjustment.

It's completely unnecessary. The ONLY thing you can adjust on the Jeep as far as alignment is toe in. You can adjust that yourself easily using a tape measure and chalk. Paying for an alignment on a Jeep is just silly and a waste of money. I've had over 10 lifted Jeeps and not once did I ever get an alignment on any of them.
Most people don't know how to do it themselves. I did also, but was off slightly after an alignment. Do it yourself is ok for off road, but if you worried about tire wear and highway ride, go to your favorite shop. Self preference.

According to the Mopar 2' Inch Lift Installation instructions, the springs will bow outwards when installed correctly, I agree that it does not look correct.
