Default This is what I want to do to my dakota but don't know how

I own a dodge dakota quad cab with mud terrains tires and its got the 4.7 v8. I love this truck I won't ever sell it. Anyway the one thing I want to do with it is have air lift shocks. I've been researching but it seems confusing. All I want is to be able to lift my truck with air shocks like 3 inches then when i'm towing my boat be able to lower it to stock height. I hope one of you guys can help me out. This is really want I want my dakota to do.

(video of a ram but i want my dakota to have this)

What parts do I need? Where should I buy them? And what does it cost?

Its a rough concept...I would love to do this too...the best thing you can do is get an air-over spring set...but taht would only be for the rear(if you have a 4x4). This guy prob has an air ride system. They are great, but you pay for it.

Im looking at the Rancho RS9000XL setup...Basically similar...just doenst give you lift...stiffens to level(I am assuming).
