    I bought a new house, and finally have a garage. My Blazer has 4" tuff country lift, and 33s. I have the top off, and I clear my garage by 3.5". Can I fit 35" tires and still get in the garage. I dont know anyone that has some I can try before I make a mistake and buy them??? Thanks

    The 35's will actually only give you 1" of lift over the 33's. You should be OK

    Technically apeaking it should fit.
    You should only get 1 of the 2" below the axle therefore only lifting the truck 1".

    How big is your garage, my 2.5" lift and 33's and the roof rubs the door.

    Still in GB?

    It will be close...if it won't fit then back up 100 yards, floor it, and right in. Getting out willbe a different story. /forums/images/graemlins/doah.gif/forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    Measure to see if where the door stops going up because mine stops about 2" below the opening. Or just air down and pucker up. /forums/images/graemlins/shocked.gif

    I think 7' is the standard height garage door. I know mine is and some other houses I looked at before I bought this one all measured in right at 7' 0". My truck is 6'10" high with 35's and about 5" of suspension lift. You have to pay attention to the slope of your driveway and garage floor, because the truck will pitch a little bit, eating up some clearance. Without a top, this is easier.

    Most garage door openers can be adjusted for the open position. Make sure the door is not eating up clearance. I also moved a 1" weatherstrip off of the opening and mounted it on the door itself for 1" additional clearance. If it's close, take a look at things and see what you can move. /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif

    I'm envious of any one who can get their truck in their garage. mine's way to high. I'd have to take the wheels off to get it in, and thats with only 36 inchers on it. /forums/images/graemlins/hack.gif /forums/images/graemlins/weld.gif /forums/images/graemlins/grind.gif
