You might be better off trying to find someone to trade trucks with you.
    Yeah, removing it could be fairly complicated... there's a handful of guys and girls out there on the Rebel forum who've removed theirs and done the 6" BDS coilover lift, doable if you have $4000 you're willing to part with. Wasn't sure if there's anyone who's done something in between removing the air rides and installing a less desert runner level suspension set up?

    Josh over at CFT Performance has some very reasonably priced links to lift the air suspension. If you're getting a rough ride you're lifting it too high and need to lower it to find a happy medium between height and ride quality. Don't forget the alignment after the link lift due the change in camber.

    I think removing the factory air suspension is ludicrous due to the amount of air lines and other components, not to mention the computer programming involved.

    I think this is the way to go! I'd like to talk with someone who's been running the lift but it likely ends of saving the most money while keeping spendy factory options. Thanks!

    I think the minimum for the 35"x11.5" Nittos is essentially change the links to replicate Offroad 1 all the time with the links but no body lift required. If 12.5" wide then you have to consider a body lift and/or spacers. Side bar, those CFT links for $70 are a good deal as I've prob got $50 into mine hunting around for all those specialty fittings on Ebay and Amazon.

    Set up some adjustable links for mine but I haven't finished playing with them or brought in for alignment, they Work but the factory links are on until warmer weather when I can get the heights just right and bring in for an alignment. I spent 5$ and have enough for leveling two trucks at a minimum. Anyways they are simple, Work good, and are adjustable without complete replacement like the ones just shown above with fuel line only.

    Pm if you want me to make you a pair for the front and ship them to you.

    I haven't played with the rear at all, only a front lift for leveling.
