Lifted jeep fit in garage?

I was wondering if a 2.5 lifted jeep will fit in garage.

Depends on garage door opening. As long as the opening is high enough it should be fine.

Depends on the garage height of course, but usually yes. Surely you've got more than 3" or so of clearance now?

Mine is 93"/w boat on top and I've got 3" of clearance-

Like the guys say--how much space you got ?

How about.. Measure the height of the garage door when it is open, ok now measure the height of your Jeep under the door, and then add 2.5 inches. I hope you can figure out the rest from here. If you are still unsure just put the Jeep in the garage shut the door install the lift and drive out see what happens...

Thats funny rite der.




Yes it will fit, start at the end of the drive way and get up lots of speed and shove it in there.

It will fit, if you have 8 ft sheet rock in your garage you will have Around eighty three inches clearance at the door.

Obviously an imprecise measurement, but let's put it this way: I would be very surprised if my jeep (2.5" of lift, 33s) didn't fit in an "average" garage.

Haha mine wont fit in a 7' parking garage. I found this out when I took my daughter to the beach a few weeks ago.

I dont see any problem with a 2.5 lift and 33's fiting in most places.

Yes it will fit I have a 1950's car garage and get my JKU with a 3 " lift and 35's in with about 6-8 inches on each side and about 8 inches of clearance height wise. I even got a tape measure because to the naked eye it does not look like it will fit but believe or not it does.

Measure. And figure that lifts can come up higher than the *size* it's called for... typically will settle a bit after awhile.

About 14 years ago - I found out my surfboard on top of my Exploder wouldn't fit.... the hard way. Forgot it was up there
