Which shocks for 3.5" X Factor?

I have the 3.5" X Factor with 35" BFG M/Ts and fox 2.0 remote res shocks that are rated for 2" - 4" lifts on my 2015 JKU Freedom.
My only problem is that my flex is I THINK limited by the shocks. Doesnt flex enough. What shocks do you reccommend for this setup?
On the picture below, the frnt passngr tire is off the ground.
Thanks in advance.

Is it disconnected in that pic? That could be limiting your droop. Also if you invest in flat fenders, that'll give you more clearance.

The fronts were disconnected,
The earlier response about the shock length is my problem. I am selling these now and getting the non res, 4 to 6 inch rated fox shocks. Gonna save a lot of money and will get more travel out of them.
Oh btw, i now have the bushwacker flats.

I know it has been a long time but I still have the same shocks on there. I figured I will go coil over when I get a chance.

It's the shocks, I had the same ones from my previous lift. Went RK 3.5 x-factor and they were not long enough. I just ended up swapping in the Bilstein 5100 RK recommends on their website until I move to coil overs.
