thanks guys for the compliments! the truck has a 3.0 in it. the front wheels are ford wheels 17x8 with 245/45s and the rears are 17x10 1/2s with 315/35s.
i think the rear wheels are from americanmuscle.com,i bought them used so i cant say 100%.

That looks really good man, it would look so much cleaner with a color matched Edge bumper on the front though.
