I am looking to my fellow Edge lovers for some help as to how I can get a bit of a lift on my Edge so I can throw some 31 or 32's under the wheel wells. I have had this idea for a bit and have attached a nice pic of what I would like it to simulate. I retire in 3.5 months after 20 years on Active Duty and starting my own gunsmithing and customization shop, this is going to be my rolling advertisement and have heads turning for sure. Ill let the picture do the talking and have questions and ideas roll in here. Let er rip peeps.

I like  the look,  You see a lot of this kind of stuff on Jeep forums  but not for the Edge.  I'm not sure about the PTU and other mechanicals holding up under really rugged conditions but the look is there and would make a really great rolling billboard for your new business. :)

I think the weight of the larger tires and wheels will cause problems with the drivetrain components.  Might be better to go with some flashy wheels and standard 21" or 22" tires.

I am keeping the factory 17 inch wheels I have on it now, blacking them out and throwing the 32's on em. There is plenty of room in those wheel wells for a bit of travel and the weight is not going to be that much of a difference for the powertrain to handle. I take care of my vehicle with the good stuff and Im not worried at all. It's paid off now so anything I put into it is just investment at that point. Already have a good competition system in it.

It isn't the weight so much that you have to worry about. It is the overall diameter and it's effect on the gearing.

The diameter isn't much different than the 22s that are being put on these beasts. This will not have much, if any issues with the gearing. Speedometers can be recalibrated to read correctly and so can the tachometers. Flashing the system after the Procharger is added as well, it will be fine. I just picked up some 32s and they will look great once on, just waiting for the tires on the Edge to wear down enough to be plausible for removal to make sense. By then I should have the lift and ProCharger installed as well. I'm not going to be just leaving things stock, I will be beefing up the drive line and suspension. May even be rebuilding the motor since I have over 200K on it. I've seen people with almost 300K on their Edges which is good to hear! Cannot wait to get this all started. This forum has put this all in motion and I am grateful for this to be built for us.

I can't imagine 32's on 17" wheels. Love to see a picture when you get them installed. Must have one hell of a sidewall.

It's only a 70 series profile sidewall, not bad. Waiting for the rubber on the ones on the car now wear out to throw these on. Cannot wait!

Why not put the 32's on now? Yes, there is additional cost for installation, but in case something doesn't work out you have instant replacement tires. Not sure how much tread you have left, but at this point, to me, they would have the same value as bald tires since they are something you don't want.

 

Would give you a little breathing room to rethink things if the 32's don't work out.

I don't have the lift on hand just yet. I'll be getting that when I get my tax returns. Don't worry, it'll all be getting done. I also have to move back to MN in a few months after I retire so just hold on. It'll be getting done and trust me, those 32's will work, I'm not worried. There is a lot of room in those wheel wells. I may even be pulling those out as well.

Fitment is one thing, I was also considering ride/handling.

And reliability. I still think it may cause wheel bearing issues at the least.

The weight of the Edge at over 5,000 lbs is an issue in itself when it comes to bearings and handling. If the right equipment is used and set properly, everything will last just fine and work just fine. Nitro shocks with bump stops and limiting straps to help control and hold everything together during rough play for a smoother ride. I don't plan on going out and doing a ton of rough riding to begin with. This isn't going to be a dune runner or anything, just something I want to do that I haven't seen anyone else do. Maybe putting this out there and keeping it up to date we will see more doing it. I would just like to see the Edge lighter so everything doesn't wear so fast, even though the only thing I have replaced is the bearings and they lasted 150K.

If you have a YouTube account, just link the video onto your post.

If you just put the raw address of your video into your post, you get the YT screen. Using the link feature from the bar above gets you the clickable hotlink above.

 

As for the exhaust, has anyone put lake pipes on an Edge? :stirpot:
