Can anyone with a 2011, or newer JKU, with a six inch lift, on 37's tell me what the overall hight is?? Will it fit in to a standard garage??

Would you be able to tell me how tall the jeep would be with that set up? Are you running that set up on your jeep?? Because here's the deal.. I'm about to dump about ten, to fifteen grand in to mine. I want the six inches of lift and the thirty-seven inch tires because I plan on doing a lot of wheeling, and I've always been go big, or go home. Besides, it will look badass!!! I'm not going to do the lift till the first of the year, after I get a Tahoe for my day to day driving. I like to put all of my cars in the garage, and out of the elements, reach of grubby hands, and out of sight from those same hands. I really didn't want to go with a four inch lift and thirty-fives, but if need be, then I guess I gotta pick what's more important than the other. ...like, another option I was kicking around is a six inch lift on thirty-fives.. How tall would that be? Will that then fit in to the garage??

Measure it. Add six inches for the lift, half the size between 37's and what you are running now, add to your current height.

Measure your door opening, that's what you have to fit through.

Garages don't come in standard sizes, everyone's different.

What do you mean by half the size of the 37's and what I'm running now..? I have the stock 2011 Sahara 18" wheels on there right now. I understand the add six inches to the hight for the lift part. The tire part is where I'm having the issue in measurement.

4" of lift and 37's would fit in my garage but barely so I will be running 2.5" lift, flat fenders and 37's next year.

Okay, a guy at work just explained it to me.. Stock tires on a 2011 Sahara are 32 inches. Half of 32 is 16. Half of 37 is 18.5. That's a 2.5 inch difference. Half of that is 1.25 inches. So added to the six inches of lift, I would have 7.25 inches added to the Jeep.... Right?

And the source of "standard garage" was when I asked this same question at the Jeep dealership, that's what they told me, lol

I think that's its actually 2.5 inches of added tire height. 37-32=5. So you'll have tires that are 5 inches bigger around. 5/2=2.5 is the height difference.

Okay, first of all I want to thank all that have helped me out with this..

I stand corrected on the size of a stock 2011 Sahara tire hight. It is not 32", it is 31"..

So, the overall hight of a stock JKU is 70.5 inches tall (5'-10 1/2").

The difference between a 31" tire and 37" tire is obviously 6". Half of that is 3". So, with a 6" lift, on 37" tires, the total hight of the Jeep would be 79.5 inches tall (6'-7 1/2"). My garage opening (measured with the door opened) is 83" tall (6'-11").

So with a 6" lift, on 37" tires the Jeep will fit into my garage with only 3.5 inches to spare... Awesome!!!! I am so happy now!!!

Thanks again everyone

You got it. Remember this is all ball park, driveway slope, tire pressure can change everything. Also a 6" lift is not exact, some run more some less. Since you have a calculated 3.5" you should be OK, but have somone spot you the first time you try and put it into the garage.
