    Just bought a 16 x 8' tall garage door to replace my double 8' x 7' tall doors off Craigslist for $200 - insulated - no windows!

    This means I can fit the Blazer in my garage with the top on - and MAYBE even consider bigger tires (if) when the 37 Krawlers ever wear out. (with my average miles travelled of around 20 per year- that will be awhile) :D

    The Blazer did fit in the current garage with no air out of the tires - but I had to take the top off - and even remove the factory rollbar - and pull down the visors when I went under the door.

    Now just to reframe the house!

    LOL

    You've heard the story of the guy; spent years on a hobby/building a boat in his livingroom. Didn't think ahead.
    I half expected it but....I bolted-up a 4" lift, over the Holidays, in the garage, so I could work even if it was night or cold. Aired down to 15,,,nope, 10,,,,nope,,, 5 psi.; that did it.:haha:
    Burb on 4" over 35s.
