Removing Kitchen Soffit


For a variety of reasons, we wanted to raise our new cabinets 2 to 3 inches from where the old ones are. Problem... I looked inside our soffit. What a mess! I was wondering how I might be able to do this.... If I removed the soffet and just had all of this sit on top of the kitchen cabinets, and then put some cabinet facing above the cabinets to cover the view..... is there anything wrong with that thinking? or are there any other ways this could be accomplished? Below is a link to 3 photos of what I am talking about. I'm also wondering if those water pipes expect support from what's underneath them or if that is just a coincidence.

I would rip it down a it looks like you could build it about 2 inches higher and drywall it again.

Looks like a chase for everything but the kitchen sink.
