Yes you will get between 4 or 5 inches in the front if you crank your t-bars and install a body lift. just make sure you get an alignment if you crank them alot, that way you dont ruin your tires.

Edges come with the rear sitting an inch higher than the front. In order for me to fit my 32 inch BFG A/T's with no lift I had to level out my truck and raise the front an inch. So that's where the cranking of the t-bars came in.

Not sure....I believe you won't need to since your 4x4 and getting the lift. Someone else should chime in with their experience/advice.
