My jeep has been sitting in the rail yard about 20mins from my house since Tuesday, just waiting for a ride to the dealership. The wait is killing me.

Do people feel with XR the jeep can still benefit from replacing with a longer LCA? I saw someone mentioned that the XR still uses the same LCA as a regular Rubicon. And https://www.jlwranglerforums.com/forum/threads/mopar-lca-swap.22474/ mentioned the longer LCA improved the ride noticeably.
The longer LCA does not improve the ride quality. It only lets you set your caster and pinion angle. Geometry correction brackets improve ride quality while letting you adjust caster and pinion angle.

Are you kidding??? Damn!!! I could have sworn they were advertising it as having the Mopar lift. Guess I read it wrong! So will a 1/4" longer LCA really make that much difference?

Thanks for the clarification.
No a longer LCA will make no real difference. If they added an extra degree of caster to the front diff it would make more difference then an LCA.

My 392XR arrived at the dealer this morning 159 days after order and it took exactly 7 weeks to get to the dealer from its birth date of 10/13.
