    Not sure about air but know you can get self-leveling.

    I am in a wheelchair and will take out the front bench in the crew and put down sheet metal for a floor. This will let me drive from my wheelchair. Right now I have 13" floor to ground which makes for a long ramp to get in and out. If I can lower the machine I can use a much shorter ramp. ADA standards are 1' per 1", so I would need a 13' ramp to go up 13", I can get by with less but it would still be too long to use in my garage. If I could get the floor down to 6"-8" I would be in good shape.

    I spoke with the company called Ride Tech that makes shockwave air ride systems for vehicles. They used to have an UTV offering but pulled it since it was not popular. I have an old 1/4 horse compressor and 3 gallon tank from a prior project and contemplated using it on my ranger. When I called them the guy said if I sent them stock ride height measurements of the shocks they could crossreference and build a set for me. I would agree and look into air ride to get the ability to set it on the ground for entrance/exit and lift back up for operation. there are a few videos of guys with RZRs that have done that on YouTube.
