Thx for the reply. I called a couple places and got some info to figure out where I can and can't go with a level/lift.I've never measured from the truck top but mine fits in my 82.5" garage. Barely. i have 2" lift in the rear and 2.75" front with 315/70/17 all around.
Pretty sure I have it figured out now as far as what I can and cannot do to still fit in my garage. Now it's just picking which way I want to go...My 1500 does not fit in my 83" garage. I roughly measured and the roofline sits around 84" + shark fin. This is with a 3" body lift and 3" spacers on clapped out factory dampers/springs, and 37s.
No idea what the original height was as I never bothered to measure, I just assumed once I'm finally done with the lift that it won't fit into most garages.
Lol I love my paint too much to not garage it. I'm only doing it for looks as I don't offroad at all.never measured, but the point of a lifted truck is the fact it will never fit in a normal garage again !
You do not want to be level. Since the hood is higher than the the bed a level truck appears nose highI am a bit worried the top setting of 2.75 lift won't clear 35s though and also my fenders measure 3" rake. That being said 2.75 front Nearly puts me level but the kit also has 1" in rear so I'm not level in the end but I do get to 1.25" rake instead of 3".
