I can barely fit in mine. I am on 33's on a suspension lift. I almost hit the top of the door.

My friend with his excursion can't fit in his truck, he's stock on 285/75R16's. And a double lifted ranger on 35's is bigger than him.

He has an over sized garage to boot.

most garages are 8ft so probably not, my dads stock edge with a cap barely fits in our 8 ft door...

i dont have a garage that i can get into, but my friends garage was a tight squeeze, my FRONT antennae was scraping the top, along with the parking garage at a mall near me, now that'll scare the crap out of ya. i bet even if i went to 35's from 33's i might start hitting stuff..

My truck is right at about 7 feet at the roof I think, maybe a little more. With or without the light bar I cannot fit in my garage but at Beards house I can, the shop we did my lift in is more of a standard height door.

Ranger1 (Ben) was here recently with a coilover front suspension lift AND a 3" BL on his 4WD Ranger -- the thing is a mile tall. My truck (I thought) looked big -- nope. His truck is gigunda and with the light bar on it, I think he's going to have to start looking at the clearance signs on overpasses...

I have a 2 car garage and I still have about 6 inches before my roof would hit it. Not sure what height the garage door is.

With 8ft. doors and no light bar, definitely. I got a 7ft. door and still have about 3" before the roof hits, that's with 37's and roughly 9" of lift (not including tires). Just be prepared for your antenna to smack the door.
