What do you mean by flipping?

I have seen some people "outboarding" their rear shocks for a better ride/better performance/etc...but by Flipping I assume you mean top/bottom? inverting?

If so I would only invert shocks made to be mounted that way.

You must be talking about PRE-JK

Without changing the complete mounting sys, for the JK's-it can't be done

I've seen EXTREME coilover setups (KING,FOX) for the JK's, but not flipping !!
