To be sure, best thing to do is measure it. I have a 2018 2500 8' bed cc 4x4 that fits in garages that are 7' and taller, but I have to watch signs and pipes hanging, plus if there is too much angle on the ramp it may scrape the antenna. Good luck.

Maybe if the truck has the four corner air suspension but how a regular suspension sits you'll probably rip the satellite antenna off and probably scrape the roof depending on the entry/exit angle.

In general no. Way too close to be a safe choice. My 96 2500 with the high rise canopy fit in a 7' garage door, my 2021 2500 with the same canopy needs an 8' door. The newer trucks are definitely taller.

Same exact canopy, pretty easy to see the height difference. Sad part is, new truck doesn't have any better ground clearance, just made it taller to look tough.

I miss the external antenna I had on my 4th gen 1500's. They served a secondary, lesser known purpose. They would tell you if your truck was too high for a parking garage or car wash. Like a go/no go gauge. Basically if your antenna clears your truck will clear. If it doesn't, all bets are off.

I go to 2 different multi-story parking garages at the Hospital Campus

One garage has a 6" painted Plastic pipe on 2 light weight chains.
I pulled up to it & i did not move the plastic pipe, so i drove very slowly up a few levels up to the roof & there was no scraping noises.

The other garage has that plastic pipe at 6 foot, but the pipes that run along the roofline look much higher.
So I measured the highest point on my Ram & then the Security Guard took my tape measure & remeasured the high spot on my Ram & walked into the building & measured several places & told me that there was plenty of room.
He did it for me, because every time i looked up, i had a dizzy feeling, that is one of the reasons that i go to the hospital

My Ram has the 20" wheels & the coils have the additional 1" ride height

Then i have another 4 or 5 " for my sign brackets

I have a 2021 1500 Laramie crew cab with a 6’4” bed, a bigger tire on an 18” wheel and about a 3” lift. While I haven’t had many times where my truck didn’t fit height wise, I’m careful and try to stay at about 7’, what I have issues with is how tight some of these garages are. In Seattle, where I’ll be in a week, there are garages I avoid. Turns can be single narrow lanes on both sides a there are times there isn’t enough room to get into or out of a space. I would rather put it on the street and walk.
