Anybody seen an air suspension like this?

Just curious, has anyone seen a truck like say an f250 with an air bag suspension on say 38s or 37s that can lower all the way down to tuck the tires I just thought it would be neat since a 38 can still fit in the wheel well unless it's turning. It would be pretty cool to be able to go from a stock height or a little bit higher while getting in then popping up to a 10 inch lifted height or so for riding since you can't turn otherwise lol. So anyone?

not that it isnt achieveable, but you are asking for a very specific bag configuration. to be able to go from near stock to 10" + is a whole lot. most system give a minimum over stock and then offer and amount of travel based on bag choice.

if you have a lift configured for 10" or so, I would imagine that something would bind (track bar and or drag link, etc...) before it could go that low

Yeah it just made me think this was possible seeing some videos on YouTube of different trucks going from like a 4 inch lifted height all the way to about 14 inches of lift in a second or so.

That is a good point. One major thing to consider is the length of the links in a four link. They would have the wheels centered in the wheel well at the lifted height but they would try to push forward when it is lowered. Now idk how much they would push forward since I haven't messed with four-links much but just a thought.

I just would have thought someone would have made a show truck like this or something by now.

Kelderman makes a lift like that. Just be prepared to sell a few body parts first.

lol yeah I've seen them. I'm not saying I would get one right now but maybe down the line. the only thing is every one of them that I've seen is on 40s so the tire limits how low the truck can go.

it would be cool to see one go from 3 or 4 inch to an 8 or 9 inch lift
