Need measurement from ground to top of lifted F350!

Can someone please tell me what their truck measures if you have a 4" lift and 6" lift from the ground to the top? I have a 2005 F350 Crew Cab and I still want it to be able to fit in my garage. The garage doors are 8' so I don't know how much lift I'll be able to put on it. Also, right now it has a 2" leveling kit so do I need to get rid of that? This is all new to me. Also if you could post up pics of your lifted truck and what brands you would recommend. I'm not interested in an 8" lift. Just 4 or 6 and I will be putting 35's on it. Thanks!

6" lift running 35's sits about 7' off the ground. I go to a car wash all the time with a overhang bar at 7'2".

Thanks! I guess I'm not interested in a 4" lift then. 6" should work out just fine with the 8' garage door. Any recommendations on a GOOD lift that isn't a TON of $$$?

Think about what you paid for your truck...don't go cheap on the lift. You maybe save some money but you'll have a truck that rides like crap!!

One kinda negates the other. Do you want a good lift or a cheap lift?

The disappointment of poor quality lasts longer than the happiness of saving a few dollars. Go to any forum and look for dissappointment of Icon products. You won't find many, if any. You will of less priced products though. And really, how much are you saving by going with the medium grade stuff? A few hundred bucks?

So Icon is a good one? I don't want to be cheap but I don't want to spend $6000 either. I have no clue what kind of price range as I haven't checked them out just yet as I didn't know where to start. One of our F150's had a Fabtech lift and I was really happy with it.
