Default "Expanded desktop" or "immersive" with soft keys?

Is there any way to use expanded desktop/immersive mode without getting rid of the softkeys?

Essentially I don't want a status bar at all, but I don't want to lose my soft keys or have to swipe up to enable.

Ideas?

With Xposed + Gravity Box, there's an option to just do immersive status bar, so the navigation bar stays, but the status bar "hides".

Dammit... i'm running ART and last I checked it wasn't compatible with Xposed and Gravity...

Thank you though, I appreciate the help

ART is overrated. At least right now since its in development stages. The pros of Xposed outweigh the pros of ART in my opinion.
