    do you know your height of the truck up to the top of the shark fin (if you have one)?

    Could you fit into a 7' garage door? 83"?

    Love the look of your truck. I'm getting 4" BDS installed, but would rather have the 6".

    So, I have kinda been following along on your posts. You seem to have similar questions that I did when I lifted my truck a few months ago. My main hang up was would it fit in my garage? My truck fits under my 7 ft door. My weather strip is @ 83". My sharkfin is aprox 1" below that. I measured probably 100x. Ultimately i cut a 7" section of 2x4 and set it on top of my truck. Drove in and out of my garage about 5x and it didnt tip over. I already had my bils on, and knew the lift would only ne another 5.5". I LOVE my 6" zone liift, and would have been wishing I got the 6, had I gone 4. That's my 2 cents

    That's a nice lift, go with the 6. I have yet to see a member on here that got the 6", and wished they would have only done the 4".

    Would the mopar oem air suspension have enough to level out your truck with your trailer?

    From what I am being told on the newer trucks with air ride it would level out. But mine being older I dont have air ride

    I would love to take the leap of faith and get the 6" lift. I have done the same thing. I put 6" blocks on top of my truck and put one 9" block back near the shark fin, to simulate the extra 3" of the fin. I put all of this in the center of the truck, the highest point. All of the 6" blocks cleared with ease. The 9" block did scrape the flexible weatherstripping around the door frame, but remember, that was in the center of the cab. The top of the cab curves downward towards the sides, so the fin is actually lower on the left side. So, I feel that block would never have hit if it was actually near the fin.

    I'm just too nervous to do it. I'd probably get served divorce papers if I couldn't put my brand new truck in the garage :)

    What are your Bils set at? 1.4? 2.1? If you level at 2.1 with a 6" lift, wouldn't that give you a total raise of nearly 8" in the front? What did you do in the back? 3" , 5" ??
