i had the same idea......only no towing.....purely for show....and maybe offroading clearance issues. i was going to put 3" spindles on, and a aal in the back, and then bag it all around, with the tank and compressor under my tool box. with a couple hits of the switch, have like 10" of lift, or drop it down to just 3. xtreme4x4 on spike did somethin like that to a dodge and i thought it would be, well, badass.
