Default Reversing the low rider effect?

This is something that I've been thinking about doing to my 2000 Chevy Blazer LS 4x4 and am interested in knowing if it possible and how to go about doing it. I'm interested in reversing the effect that you see in alot of adjustable low riders where you can lower the auto and then raise it back to normal (using air shocks?) What I'm wanting to do is raise it from normal about 2 to 4 inches when needed and be able to lower it back to normal without getting out of the auto.

Is this possible and how if it is?

air shocks would do it but you would need to have an internal compressor somewhere and a button on inflate and deflate. probably would only be affective in the rear since the front won't raise up that high without adjusting your torsion bars... if you want to get into big money invest in an air bag set up, not really familiar with how those work, and most people use that to lower their trucks... not sure how they would fair to lift a truck

It's certainly possible but it will be a LOT of custom work and likely $$$$
