will your 6.4 fit into a 7 foot garage

hey guys

Im trying to sell my 04 6.0 powerstroke and when I do I want a 6.4. My 04 fits in my garage fine with the 16s and 285s and cab lights. I have about 4 inches of clearance, so I was wondering if the 6.4 with 18s or 20 inch wheels fit in a standard 7 foot garage. Thanks guys.

Ill be more than likely buying a f250 also

My 08 F-350 fits with about an inch to clear but will not clear the center shaft for the garage door so I have to make sure I'm to the far right or left. I have 20's with good year duratrac tires which I believe are stock size. I don't have cab lights.

Are 250's typically lower than 350's?

Stock 20's and stock size tires. The rear of The cab is about 1/2 inch from the garage but I think it's a little lower than 7 feet. I would say you could get away with a leveling kit and slightly larger tires.

Even with the stock 20's and before my leveling kit or blocks I never went into anything with a 7ft clearance. Ironically it were my clearance lights that would have hit.

Although I do have the snowplow prep package.

Personally with a stock 4x4 f250, clearance lights and stock 20's I wouldn't do it.

agreed! what if you hit a bump that was 3 inches? that could even be enough to make you hit that roof...

but yes 250's are a little lower, only in the rear. i think 2 inches? someone correct me.

I was able to fit in a parking garage with my f350 with my stock 20s and 33s. The height limit was 7'1" and it was close, I think I had an inch. Had my GF hanging out the passenger side window checking the height as I went up the ramp. My antenna kept snagging the overhead beams.
