    how much too big is it? maybe a set of stock wheels (read: cheap) and low profile car tires would get it in if its going to be in for extended periods. it may be meant to play outside, but you'll quickly find that you werent meant to.

    I'm in the same boat, except I can't get my truck out of the garage. I've gotta take off the top, air down the rears to nothing, and roll the front out on a shop jack. Quite an event really.

    Good thing you don't have a 14b front. You'd have cut a trough in your driveway with it. ;)

    I know the feeling. My new long bed extended cab 2500 wont fit ( too long). The jimmy barely fits stock but with the lift next week it wont fit. So now I have a very nice 2 1/2 car storage shed. I guess I wont need to install that attic door anymore.
