Measure to the top of your truck add six inches then add another couple inches based on what tires your getting. All trucks are different so you won't get a exact answer.

I don't think you will be able to fit, if you get that much lift.

That is a really low garage btw, I couldn't fit now

I think you could. I'm pretty sure my ranger with a 3 inch body lift and 35s can fit in a 6'4" garage. When I go in downtown minneapolis to SPIN nightclub, i always look for higher parking garages. Because I see how close the ceiling comes sometimes.

But all my lights would be busted, that's why I couldn't fit


The top of my lights sit 6'7", so nope I couldn't make it

I just measured the height of my cab with spindles and fabtech 2.5. It is roughly 6ft give or take an inch. I'm only 5'3" so its kinda hard for me to get an exact measurement lol. I have worn out 32"s on there right now so maybe add another 3/4" to 1" to that.
