Suspension lifts and parking garages.

Wanting to go to a 6 inch lift and 37s on my truck, but am about to start being in the city more often with the wonderful parking garages. So I'm curious, can any of y'all that are lifted fit? Or am I going to be stuck finding a parking lot and walking about 8 blocks lol.

Any input is appreciated.. especially if you're around the little rock area and know some of the areas I'm talking about.

Garages won't be that tall. My garage would fit a 3" lift on 35s at the most. And that's a Dodge. There are some apartments that have car covered sheds that would fit that height but its rare.

I'm not worried about the house, I can't fit in now as is. I was thinking more along the lines of the big ones downtown.. I guess I could roof park lol

I used to have a 150 on a 11" lift as my dd and I couldnt get in any garage anywhere ever and it was a PITA!! So I eventually sold it and bought a X5, not more than 6 months later I couldn't stand not having a truck, bit the bullet and bought a truck aswel!

You get used to finding parking 5 blocks away

Lol, wife mentioned I could use the excersize.. I think she's trying to call me fat? I figured it was a long shot and I'm not giving up the truck for a car. Looks like I'm walking. Thanks anyways

If anyone has ever done it, I'd still like to know.

I have had to do some traveling with work in the last few months and several of the parking garages I have encountered have been a REALLY tight fit in my 08 with no lift or level and 35s... one garage had a 7' clearance and there was literally 2-3 inches of clearance for my truck, I had to remove my magnetic base CB antenna before going in.... And as far as roof parking, you have to drive up through the building to get to the roof anyway, so that's out too :/

Most garages have a 7ft clearance. Best gauge I use with my E250 work truck is if the tip of antenna hits I can fit however if more then the tip hits its a no go.

I won't even take the Souper Doody to Reno anymore if we are going to park in a parking garage. 4" lift + 35s = walk time for me.

Yeah, I was mainly asking because I don't like to trudge through snow and rain.. I can handle everything else.

I think my truck measures at 7'4" to the highest point on the cab. Had to measure when built my shop last year. Ended up going to 10' doors.
