there is a 5.5 inch lift for the 2wd XLT's and I believe there is a version for the edge too. its the 3 inch spindles and 2 inch coilspacers plus shocks add a leaf a nd blocks and all, only down side is its about $1200, but it does have everything you'd need. why dont you want a body lift?

Travis....use the "baby step" method: Start off with 3" spindles and AAL(Add-A-Leafs). Your be able to fit 31s I believe. and then go on from there. The Spindle lifts are by far the cheapest, but if you wanna go all out first off, Camburg makes a kit for your truck. It's about a 6.0 or so, ready for 33s, or 35s if you wanna be iffy. Fabtech is probably the most common kit out there...here's a link:
http://performancelifts.com/cgi-bin/...TS98200-7.html

But just remember this when ordering a lift...2wd EDGES are NOT the same as 2wd XLTs....completely different suspension.

Companys to look at for your lift: Fabtech, Camburg

But Remember, go as big as you think you can afford. Going big, costs big. Cheapest bet is just do spindles and AALs.
