What trails in and around Big Bear do you need more than two wheel drive?

Oh god... I juust got a bad taste in my mouth thinking about the close to $4,000.00 I spent trying to keep my RR LWB's air susp. working properly... only to spend an additional $399.00 for the coil conversion in the end.
I don;t even want to imagine what these new systems cost when they start to break!
I was so obsessed with the air ride that I have thought of reusing my still brand new air springs and just rigging a manual air inflation system with simple inflation valve's and some gauges.

Clearly you have been shopping at the wrong store. There are three complete EAS systems sitting on my shelf in the basement. Sorry to hear that you scrapped the air. I replaced the PO's coils on my Lawib with air using mostly new or nearly new parts. Cost was a couple hundred bucks. Ebay often has EAS parts that frustrated owners sell for next to nothing. The only thing that really screws up on these is the air pump.
EAS is too cool to not take advantage of.

Well I didn't spend that much, might have stretch the truth a little. Mostly spent a lot on labor with a specialists.
Did replace the compressor, air springs, they rebilt the valve block. Then the hight sensors and ECU started to act up, that's when I was done. Every thing is still on the LWB but the springs and I am very happy with the coils!
However, I did choose to stiff a coil for the rear, that's what gave me the idea to put my air springs on the rear only and rig a valve to manually regulate the pressure.

All that complicated equipment could be eliminated by using a simple vavle attatched to the axle (1 each) to add air or dump it just like they do with tractor trailers. They use 1 $60.00 valve per tamden (axles)....no sensors no computers!
