(To be clear, the mount in the picture is the prototype, the gray mark is the deep scratch caused by the MFC mounts.)

I know that MFC has run afoul of this site, and I have no connection to him at all. But I have the MFC lift, and its been great. It lifts both the front and rear, about 1.5 inches, and with larger tires, you can get 2+ inches of lift front and rear.

Granite Crystal, 3.2L V6, 8.4 Nav, black leather, sunroof, tow, tech, comfort/conv, no hood decal, 9 speakers, CD player, Maximum Care lifetime warranty, Mopar first aid kit, rear rubber cargo mat, Thule Aeroblade cross bars (black), Thule Rapid Aero feet, Kuat Vagabond X cargo basket, RRO rock rails with smooth covers, Mopar door sills, Raingler ceiling net, Raingler seat headrest handles, MFC aluminum lift kit, RRO winch bar and Warn M8000S winch, BFG T/A KO2s

I'll also say that another option for 2+ inches of lift is in testing as well, so perhaps give it a bit to see how things go.

In regard to warranty though, warranty is just as voided going with a 1.5" lift or a 2.5" lift, no matter what some non-mopar websites may claim.

I had my rear PTU replaced under warranty.

As it should have been. Lifting does not void the entire warranty, but could, at dealer discretion, void parts it touches, such as struts, shocks, springs, or unlikely but potentially axles

VOIDING a warranty and having a warranty claim DENIED are two very different scenarios, often incorrectly used interchangeably.
