    I was holding my breath while I backed in ever-so-carefully. Haven't tried since the lift & tires. Plenty of room yet, maybe for 35's! /forums/images/icons/grin.gif

    Mine fit with a 4" and 35s, but you had to physically hold the door up or the cab lights would scrape.

    <font color="green"> I know the feeling, mine actually fit in my garage with 6" lift and 38s with 1/2" to spare! It won't once the one ton stuff is in though, since it will be a bit taller. </font color>

    While holding the door up the roof of mine will scrape the top of the garage... 4" and 35's. I hate doing it but it's a pain to work outside at night / winter.

    Just air down the tires a bit before you pull in. It's a hassle, but your roof won't get scratched! /forums/images/icons/cool.gif

    The rest of my truck is scratched so for the time being I'm not too worried about it /forums/images/icons/wink.gif.

    That was a true 'redneck' statement!

    My truck fits but only by a quarter of and inch. With 4"lift and 33's.

    If I take the soft top off I might fit if I air down. Haven't tried yet.
    Hard top...I was scraping on 32's. Doubt it will fit unless I air down to about 5 psi.
    Door is right at 7ft.

    LOL Andrea what a cute pic. It reminds me of that commercial with the guy that keeps buying bigger tvs to fit in his entertainment system. He had maybe a hairline of space left and wanted to fill it in with a bigger tv. Sounds like you /forums/images/icons/smile.gif

    Let all the air out and roll it in on the Rims!! Or do like monster trucks...tiny wheels and tires for when they transport them. But that would be a huge Pain in the arse to do every day when you want to park your truck.

    Well now, see, it was in the 50's and my youngest has a fever. We get fumigated if I have the soft top sides down. I decided to put the hard top on as the forecast looks chilly all week and I have to do some after-dark driving with the little ones. So I backed up to the top, wrestled it on, and carefully drove out. Scraped the hard top! Oh well, the 5 of us have outgrown this 2 bedroom house and now our trucks have outgrown the garage!

    I'm suprized the added weight of the hardtop wouldn't have kept the rear down just enough to clear. /forums/images/icons/tongue.gif

    Yes, 4" and 33's. But I was wrong. It doesn't fit now that the hardtop is back on - AND now the tailgate won't shut, thus the rear window won't go up, thus my dual exhaust out the back is HORRIBLE. Baaaaad smell... I am researching WI laws as to exhaust, if I can route it in front of the rear wheel.
