How tall is your Jeep?

Guys, Looking at the AEV 3.5" lift with 35s (12' JKU), but I'm worried it won't fit through my standard garage door. Anyone have that problem?
Thanks!

You should be fine. I have a 3.5" Rock Krawler lift with heavy bumpers, but my Jeep easily clears. I think the highest part of my Jeep is about 75.5" when I last measured it. My garage door opening is 84". Even if you don't have a lot of weight weighing down your Jeep, you should clear a standard garage door opening.

Your stock Jeep height will probably increase 1.5" from the larger tires and about another 4" or 4.5" from the lift.

I have the same setup and fit through just fine. I measure at 76" with the lift and 315 70r17 duratracs. I have the AEV bumpers front and rear as well as a winch though.

your goal is for you jeep to not be TOO tall? I'm 6'5" and from day one I've decided that the jeep needs to be taller than me (I hate sitting down into vehicles).....right now it needs a few inches to catch up....

I (97 TJ softop) fit with a 5.5 inch lift on 40s. Although it is tight, and both the radio and CB antennas hit.
I did have to adjust the garage door opener, to allow it to go up that very last inch.

I have a tj with 5 inch lift and 33s and I fit in my house garage. Parking garage at work as well. About 2 inches to spare. It makes my butt pucker going through the parking garage.
