Yes the search feature works great, but I'll help you out.

Buy a 3" body lift from Performance Accesories or Summit Racing:

http://www.performanceaccessories.com/

This will clear 33s easily. Since you do have an Edge model, you have Torsion bars. So if you want to level it and have a little more tire clearnance, then crank them.

As for wheel size, I would personally go with a 15" wheel because tires are cheaper for them than say 16s. Of course if you go 16s, you have to get metric tire size. If you DO go with 15s, get a 15x8 with 3.75 backspacing (this is what i have, im not lifted though). As for you axle, 4.10s are fine, but 4.56s would be ideal for them.

For visuals, here is an 05 Edge 2WD with 31s and a 3" BL and cranks torsion bars:





here is a ranger with 3" BL and 33s:
