Saw this on BadRoll's for sale add. What does he mean by flipped calipers?

I think that refers to the position on the rotor. For example the calipers on my 8.8 are mounted on the back side of the axle (towards the rear of the vehicle). A flip kit would move them to the front of the axle. I've seen people do this for shock clearance.

I can see the need to do them on the rear axle, as my 'Zu d44 calipers are pretty low with the pinion pointed upward, but what's the benefit of doing it up front?

Your right. His ad says flipped calipers on the front axle. I'm not even sure how that's possible and still have clearance for tie rods and such.
