Every time you post an issue. It’s another reason to ghost ride this pos off a cliff.

Well after the lift kit the suspension was really stiff so it does bounce kinda rough, I have a front end rebuild kit and all new shocks on the way, should be here money, but I'm curious what needs to be fixed to set the motor back up a few inches

I gotta second the motor mounts. Plus the bent thing.
But on the good side. Your belt needed replacing any how.

Easy way to check 'em, start it (don't need a belt for that), put it in gear and hold down the brake pedal, now give it gas and see if the engine raises up or tries to get out of the engine compartment. Good guess if you jumped it, you broke the motor mounts.
Its a common problem with getting air born!

It may be motor mounts, but replacing them will not lift the motor up "a few inches," as you say, nor do I think a broken motor mount(s) would have done that kind of damage. A broken motor mount generally causes twisting and torquing action, more so than straight lifting, IMHO. Unless, of course, your transmission mount is also broken, then the only limit would be when the transmission hits the cowl/transmission tunnel area of the cab.

Oh ROO, I have seen that from broken mounts, but also from a half ton truck raping itself around a tree at eighty miles an hour!
Have also seen motor mounts punched into an engine block of a truck that hit a parking curb at forty miles an hours! He got big time air though!
when the cooling fan is all the way thru the radiator, You have a broken motor mount/frame/spine/windshield,etc.

Bottom Line Skyler, we need more photo's of whats going on.
Were you driving it when the AC clutch exploded?

Also, did a tow truck get you home or a Roll Back?

It was just the ac clutch, I continued driving it home and just removed the belts, and I've never got big air, only like speed bumps and stuff cause of the super stiff suspension, I tried to check passenger motor mount but honestly I cant even see in there, theres no sight room,

You need to try this. You can do it in forward and/or reverse. You should be able to see the mount pretty well on the left side. May be a little more difficult on the right. You might also try jacking up the tranny by placing a 2X4 on a floor jack and lifting easy under the pan...and you'll see if your tranny mount is broken as well.

Skylardog, We need some updated pictures of the whole truck. We are giving advise on a vehicle I can not recall seeing.
A good picture tutorial would do us all some justice on giving you advise.
Maybe a video? you posted one of the wobble, Do a 360 of the truck and refresh us on whats going on.
Thanks
