What is the height of our trucks?

What is the standard height of an F250 4x4FX4, stock, not lifted, with the 20" wheels and tire package? I am arguing with our building management people at work who tell me it will fit in the parking garage. I say no, no!!! The sign leading into the garage says "Clearance 6 Foot 8 Inches". I think that is right where the top of our trucks are, stock, so one little bump and I'm hitting the top of the garage!!! I'm not about to try it!

Thanks!!! Carl

F250, 4WD, Crew Cab with stock tires (33.2") on the 18" wheels comes in at at 79.7" or 6.64'

The same truck with the 20" wheels and 34.1" tires will be about an inch higher at 80.6" or 6.72' +/-

Your results may vary, and don't blame me if your truck becomes a convertible because a 6.8' garage rips off your roof.

My rule of thumb used to be, before I replaced my antenna with a shorty antenna, is that if my antenna hits I'm not using that garage.

I went to a job site in Downtown and had to go up 6 floors of a hospital parking garage... My antenna was rubbing the WHOLE way up there... I had about 1" gap and there was a HUGE line behind me cuz I was going 0.005 mph up the 6 floors

Yea and you have to factor in that a lot of parking garages have speed bumps which will raise your truck up several inches as you go over them.

Thank you sir! From my rough guesstimate and use of the trusty tape measure, it is almost exactly 6' 8". I'm not driving my $60K rig into the garage. NOOOOOO WAAAAAYYY!!!
