How rusty is the underside of the truck? lol. Seriously I want to know.
I may be able to lend a hand, my schedule is unpredictable so I can't say if I could help for sure, but I installed a body lift on the sport trac so I'm fairly familiar with it.

But, I do not have an impact (I didn't use one). Do you have a torch? A floor jack? Covered work space?

Hey do me a favor get a measurement to the roof when you get a chance.
I can't commit to anything right now, but my sport trac with 3" body lift and 33's fit in the garage with some room to spare, and my F150 on 35's fits with room to spare.
I would generally say it is good to have 2 days set aside in case something is moving slowly, which would make things complicated if it was somewhere other than your house.
But I'm still curious if it would fit. It's a standard height garage door but it is a steep drop into the drive, gives a bit of extra head room getting in/out.

Hmm...
The F150 is 6'6 with atleast a few inches to spare.
I believe I was parking the Sport Trac in there even with the yakima basket on top (without the spare tire in it).
