Default few questions for 02 edge projects

hey guys got a few questions about a few issues about my truck, i wanna do some stuff to do it and am ready to pull the trigger but just want peoples advice.

1. im putting a 3" PA body lift on it and was wondering how to make the bumper and front bumper higher with it, i heard they hang lower after this is done due to it being attached to frame?

2. want to put the over head console from a 95-01 explorer in my truck. will it fit?

3. i want to put a bull bar on it AFTER body lift. will it fit and look right or will it be to low because of lift...?

any info will help and be greatly appreciated. not to handy with trucks and all this so if any of this seems like common sense im sorry lol

thanks guys!

ill try to help some, for #1 yes that is true but they give you bumper brackets for the front and rear to raise the bumpers. #2 I am almost positive it will work from those years. #3 and no it wont fit properly, you will have to change the mounting style to get it to bolt up and be raised. im sure others will comment on with more particulars but off the top of my head. theres some answers to help.

Actually mossyoak did the OHC write up, I did the auto dim mirror. The OHC will fit in your truck though. The body lift should come with new bumper brackets to lift your bumpers. And the bull bar, I couldnt tell ya on that one!

alrighty good to know, im excited to start working and will try and find the how to link, the bull bar wasn't of that much of importance so if it doesn't work out no worry's. just money in my pocket lol
