wanting to lift my edge, but i have some questions...

well since its going to be a PITA to lower my truck, im thinking about lifting it a little. things im wondering is how hard/easy it is to do this? also its a 2wd, so would you recommend against this? ive seen a a few 2wd edges that look good lifted. what are the biggest tires i can get without having to change gear ratios and stuff like that? im thinking about doing 33" tires, so what size lift would you guys recommend?

sorry for all the questions, but thanks in advance.

you said you want a small lift? You'd probably wanna lean toward a spindle lift. its a 3 inch lift for non edges but for and edge i think its a 3.5 inch lift. 33's would look good. As for re-gearing, you should really look into getting 4.56's if you running a tire that size. I have 32's and i upgraded to 4.56's.
