    4" lift and 33's fit a 7 foot garage just fine. I think I have about 5" to spare.

    I'm wondering how a 4" lift, longer shackles and 35's will fit.

    Garage, people still have those. If I had one it wouldn't fit in it. When I first got my blazer. With no lift but 32 in tires It fit in my Dad's garage. But it took two people on the bumpers to do it. Know with a 4 inch lift and 33 inch tires. No way. I have a gravel drive way so I still have to go over to his house to work on it..

    I've got a 2 1/2" lift with 33's and I have about 1 1/2" to spare pulling in my garage. It does make it interesting trying to jack it up in there though.

    It's just a normal 2 (more like 1 1/2) car garage.

    I got about an inch or so until I tear out the garage door. I don't park her in the garage.
    It all depends, garages are different.

    My Blazer doesn't fit in my parent's garage. 2.5 inch lift with 33's. It doesn't help that my VW Bus is in there ether...It takes up two of the 3 car garage's...

    Heights OK. No lift, just big tall wide tires. My problem was fitting side to side. I have to roll down my window and pull in my drivers mirror to fit. But worth it to protect my "Baby".

    4" Superlift with 33's, and it wouldn't have a prayer of fitting in the garage - Then again, the wife's Cherokee won't fit in there with all of my junk.

    I don't think my truck would like parking inside even if it would fit. Or, even if I had a garage. :)

    Well, let's just say I have tried many a-times to get what I could of my old Jimmy into the garage. On days I got caught in the rain with my top off, I would just back up until the cab hit the garage. That was with a 6" lift and 35's. Now the true test........I can't get in my with a 4" and 33's.......especially after this weekend. Going to a 9" suspension and 38's.

    I like the 12" lift and 44's.......don't even have to explain that one!

    <font color=purple> I have 4" of lift and 33" tires, it'll fit in the garage if I air down the tires. I just got a set of rally rims yesterday and will be putting smaller tires on those so it can go in the garage and be worked on. It won't matter when I put the 2" body lift in soon. After that and my new 35's, it won't fit no matter what.

    White Knight - I want to see your Blazer with the 12" and 44's.

    I have 38" TSL's and my K5 clears the 7' garage by a couple inches. I think I can go to 39.5" tires and still squeak it into the garage. I'd never leave my baby outside, no theft insurance. [​IMG]
