what is the maximum amount of lift/tire size before a fsj will not fit into a standard 2 car garage?

after 4" suspension and 3" body lift with 35x12.50's is mine still going to be short enuf to get it into the garage? Just asking in advance.

Take a look at your clearance now and add about 4" to 4.5".

3" for the body lift and 1" for the tires.

Why not give your garage a body lift?

Two courses of 12" block should do it!

You could always let the air out of the tires.

I am running this set-up on my 79 wide track. I clear MY garage by about a 1/16th on an inch (seriously). Just let a little bit of the air out the tires to adjusty accordingly......

Hey I am for lifting the garage. I could not convince my other have of the added cost bnut hey good luck to ya.

I got mine stuck the first time. Had to remove the roof rack and let the air out of the tires. That 3" body lift will be the killer. Good luck

thanx for the replies,i have a garage attached to the house but will be building a detached 24 x 32 in the back yard and i am now convinced at least one row of cinder block should give me the clearance i need.
I don't intend to lift any higher or bigger tires this will be my maximum.(for this rig)

If you are building a new garage anyway, just install 12 foot doors! That would be the easiest and most cost effective way to do it.
