2001 ford ranger edge

I just bought a 2001 ford ranger edge 3.0 v6 5-speed 2wd. First truck I've ever owned. I don't know much about trucks and was wondering If any one knew any specs on it. I also need to get new rims and tires and was wondering what I could fit on it with out having to put a lift on it. Any other ideas to make it look and preform sweet send them my way thanks.

Welcome to the site. I have pretty much the same truck. Since yours is the edge model it has the same t-bar front suspension as the 4x4 models giving it a higher ride height from the factory. I think a few guys are running 31" tires with no lift on here. I'm running stock 235/75R15 mud terrain tires on 15x8" level 8 wheels. I'll upload a pic once I get to a computer here...

Here is the difference, or an explanation of the EDGE package

Ford's freshening of the 2001 Ranger is one of the farthest-ranging exercises of the type. Most notable is the scrapping of the wimpy Splash name and replacing it with Edge. On this model, a pronounced power bulge on the hood -- necessary anyway for an optional 4.0-liter SOHC V-6 engine made available for 2001 (last year's 4.0-liter V-6 used pushrods) -- is teamed with a black honeycomb grille and body-color front bumper with incorporated push pads and driving lights.

The result is a new snarling face aimed at younger truck buyers. Ride height on Edge Rangers is the same higher 4x4 configuration regardless if the Ranger is a 2WD or 4x4. The Edge also gets a molded bed rail; an easily cleaned vinyl floor interior; a 60-watt, four-speaker, CD-player stereo system; and 15-inch wheels and 235/75R-15 tires. Also, the familiar 3.0-liter V-6 pushrod engine with five-speed manual transmission comes as standard equipment.

Edge Rangers slot between the base model XL -- powered in standard form by a 2.5-liter in-line four -- and the high-trim-level XLT series.

Edge adds to XL:

3.0-liter V6 engine.

Air conditioning, cloth/vinyl slit bench seat, rear jump seats (SuperCab), AM/FM/CD player.

Color-keyed bumpers, fog lights, wheel lip moldings (Styleside), bed rail covers.

Front tow hooks, Class III Trailer Tow Pkg., raised ride height, 235/75R15 all-terrain white-letter tires, 4WD models add: 4-wheel drive, 2-speed transfer case, sliding rear window.

Edge Plus adds to Edge:

5-speed automatic transmission (SuperCab).

Tilt steering wheel, cruise control, AM/FM w/in-dash 6-disc CD player.

Alloy wheels, 4WD models add: 4-wheel drive, 2-speed transfer case, 5-speed automatic transmission, step bars (Flareside), 245/75R16 all-terrain white-letter tires.

4WD Edge Plus 4.0-liter adds to Edge Plus regular cab/2WD Edge Plus SuperCab:

4.0-liter V6 engine, 5-speed manual transmission, 4-wheel drive, 2-speed transfer case.

Power mirrors, power windows, power door locks, remote keyless entry.

Sliding rear window, step bars.

245/75R16 all-terrain white-letter tires.

I would love to get some extras as in the step and fog lights after I get some new wheels. I like your set up and that's pretty much what I want to do with it and I also want to black it out too.
