Most standard garage door height is 7 feet. Measure through the space between the cab and box. You should fit though.


Although, the last 2 homes I've built I went 8 ft on the first, and 9 feet on the second.

The opening on my garage is 83" tall. I'm not sure what "standard" is but my truck has been garage kept since day one. I back it in to the single car side of my three car garage and it sure fills the opening. I've had more than one person stop in front of my house and ask how the heck I got got in there.

I can get mine just under the opening in my current house (7ft) but the d*** garage isn't long enough for my CC LB.

The single car side of my garage is 27' deep so I have plenty of room.

Mine CC fits as well. Took the antenna off, popped off the ball, hacked a few inches off, epoxied the ball back on and am good to go. It did not mess with my radio reception and the antenna just clears the door.
