How big

Before I buy one of these I need to make sure I have room . I am pretty sure I am going for a 03 F250. My garage door is standard sized (inside deminsions) are 82" Tall by 105" wide. I should have pleanty of length.

1. Will a stock F250 fit?
2. Some F250s have the big wide mirrors some do not. Will both of those types fit?
3. Do the wide ones fold back electronically?
4. How big of a lift can you put on a truck and get through a standard sized garage door.

Thanks Matt

before i put my lift on my truck would fit in my garage. it was tight, dont get me wrong. id fold the driver side mirror in as i have the "wing type" tow mirrors. you may be able to put a leveling kit on it and fit in the garage. stock height my antenna would hit and my firesticks on the mirrors would have to be removed.

Ok, firesticks, what are those? Is your garage door the same as mine?

Thanks

Firesticks are CB antennas. I have a leveling kit and 305 75 r16 tires and I couldn't even begin to fit into your garage (truck too tall). Once you put a lift kit on it, your gonna put bigger tires on it (or why would you lift it) and that will change your height. I would say that unless you have an oversized garage door, plan on parking it outside to show off to your neighbors
