    Trying to figure out if my 90k5 lifted 6" with TC springs all the way around will fit in my garage?..at the moment with an add-a-leaf on the back and the shell, the highest point measures 76" sitting on 15x8 with 31'.....im planning on running 15x10 with 35"s & 6" lift...doing the math it should raise me 8" total from where im at now....my garage opening measures 84" thats cutting it kind of close....any1 outhere have any measurements on their rigs?...thx

    you total is a little off. my truck has 11" of lift and 44's that measure to 42". my total height is 8' 6".

    Timpact are you trying to get in the garage once or all the time. if you want to park in there then the height matters more. if you just want to bring it inside to work on it you can always let air out of the tires or switch tires.

    yea you will be real close, since im sure those mickey's were probably closer to 37-38", and the 42" iroks are true or slightly taller than 42" from what i have seen depending on rim.

    With 6" and 36" SX's, I'm about 2-3" too tall to fit in mine. It will be a close call.

    just say this. "Honey remember when I told you that I was going to put in a bigger garage door and you didn't see the point?" "Well you were right, I should have gone even bigger." "so in an effort to make you happy I'm going to take down the 8' door and put up a 9' door." geuss I should have listened to you the first time." "thanks for being there to help me with these type of decisions."





    "Oh, I almost forgot, I bought you a new diamond ring/earrings/necklace."
