Parking garage question

The antenna thread gave me a thought:

Anyone with stock suspension OR package w/ OEM roof rack ever have problems with parking in a parking garage?

I'm lifted 2.5" on 33's with a custom roof rack that adds another 6+ inches. I've never had any problems! But maybe the parking garages have more height around here?

They have to be.

Up front I'm still stock, in the rear I have the TSB and I have 32" tires, most of the garages here in Tally I've only got a few inches between the roof of my cab and the ceiling of the garage. I used to completely avoid garages because I can't go into one with my 4ft CB antenna, even with a spring on it.

Wow, they must be. I can even fit into most garages around here with my cb on which sticks up even higher than my rack.

I recently went into a parking garage and had some paint transfer onto the top of my roof from a couple of signs that I thought I would easily clear but didnt

Considering you have endless possibilities with parking garage height your best bet is to measure the height of your truck and refer to the sign that is posted on every garage entrance.
