Barley Fits

I have an 06 f350 crew cab long bed and would like to at least level it and put at least 33's or 35's on it but I have a problem. When I put it in the garage now my cab lights only clear by 2"s now I was wandering if you guys had any tricks to getting it in the garage. I only use my truck on the weekends and none during the week to many short trips, so I would like to take care of it through the week any ideas about what to do would be appreciated.

yeah I guess if you only used it on the weekends letting the air out would work, you could probably loose a few inches that way

Well I don't know if you are wanting the look of the truck being a little higher, or just to have bigger tires, but if you are just wanting bigger tires I got 35's on my 99 without anything done to the suspension and that might keep you from going over the 2" till you hit

haha nice!
I'm always parking outside too. My truck fits height wise in my garage, but is too long by roughly 2 feet- so that's not happening.
