    I'm installing a 4"bds and 1" ord zero rate (front) and an echobit shackle flip on the rear. It's either gonna be sitting on 33"s or 36"s (depending on if I have time to get the axles in too). So I wanna see if I'm gonna be able to do it in the garage /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif
    If ya got search key words for me reply with them please!

    TIA

    At 4" and 35s I could barely get in the garage door. I'd have to un-hook the opener and pull inside slowly while holding the door up (7'2"-7'4" I'd guess).

    At 9" and 38s it's hopeless to try the garage without tiny tires, and in that case, the same routine as before must be used.

    I think you're 4-5" taller than you think. I suppose I'll measure. I was guessing.

    yeah I went and measured mine, on 32s and 2" of lift in the back right at the driver door is about 6 3" The more I think about it BowTie's sounds right. Think of it like this, add say 9" to my K5, that puts it at 6'11". 32s vs 39s thats a 7" difference but of course only half of that is under the axle so its a 3.5" increase. There is 7'2.5". If anything his seems a little high to me, ha.

    OK, I got an accurate meaurment tonight. Brandy new 39.5's, and 5" of lift...

    83" to the highest point on the roof. That's 6' 11" tall.

    I was pretty sure it was still under 7 feet tall. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    With 33's, worn-out stock springs, and 3" bodylift, mine is 6'5" above the cab. Just BARELY fits in the parking garage at the hospital my wife works at; I actually found myself ducking in the truck because it looked so close to my head... /forums/images/graemlins/tongue.gif
