Angry HELLLPPP!!! 2014 Air Suspension... Needs Suspension Lift!

I just bought a 2014 Laramie 1500 Crew cab 4x4 with the Air ride Suspension, and I didn't realize that no one makes a suspension lift kit for it.

I thought I heard of someone removing the air suspension completely... but this seems like it would make the trucks computer system go haywire. Can you remove the factory air suspension with no issues? And what do I need to know to do this job? (or what does the shop need to know?)
Also... If removing the air suspension is possible... What is the largest lift I can get for my 2014 Ram 1500? And is the anything in the works for the factory air suspension lift kit?

Any and all help is really appreciated. Thanks in advance.

I'm pretty sure a few members here have lifted their trucks with the air suspension. Like you said it has to be removed and replaced with a coil over suspension lift. I know people have done it with the bds 6" coil over lift. That would prob be your best option. If you wanted it higher than that you could raise the coil overs and add rear spacers or think about a body lift. Coil over lifts are much more expensive than your average suspension lift, but that's your only option with the air suspension and you get what you pay for so with the coil over system you will get a superior ride.

Yup, what Campbell said is good info ^^

Leons is one of the forum members who has done it. I forget who the other one was... but you could start by contacting him to see how the install went and how the truck is now.

Thanks everyone! And LOL @ Macc08... Yeah, I guess "need" wasn't the word, but WANTS is. Lol!
Does anyone know how to find LEON? Is there a directory here in the forum?
I just need to find out if there is going to be any complications with the computer system/electrical. It's a bummer that I spent an extra $2000 for the air ride system that I'm not even going to use.
