Question Lift?? and Garage height??

I know therre is alot of good looking rigs on here that the only way they would fit in a garge is if it was 11ft tall..

My question is who has a 7ft door like me that wants a little lift and can still get into a 7ft door?? my plans are a 2" leveling kit (already bought) and putting f-350 blocks in the back with 285/75 R16 tires(33")?? just wondering if this will still fit?? my rough measurments aren't the best as it is hard to gauge where it will sit.

thanks guys

It should fit in, my truck has a 2.5" lift with 35s and I can clear a 7' 2" parking garage so you should be fine

i have a 2.5" skyjacker with 33"s and i clear my garage by about 1/2". With that being said, i still can't park in it cause i'm about 1' too long.

I don't worry about it though. I'm about to bump up to 35's and 4.5" DR lift. to completely count me out of pulling in the garage and in most parking garages.
