    I am on a house hunting trip in Calgary and the truck is in Houston where I forgot to take measurements before I left. I found a great place but the parking garage says the height is 6'-3". I have a 2009 4x4 SR5 DC long bed with OME 885's, LR UCA's, Dakar springs and 265/70/17 BFG's. I figured stock height is 70.1" + .5" for tires and 2.5 max for 885s. If my math is right I would be sitting at 73.1" or 6'-1.1" giving me 1.9 inches of clearance. Obviously my antenna will hit and I might need to get a stubby. Anyone think I will have issues or am I good?

    Sounds right i guess. It might just be easier to break out the measuring tape to make sure though

    I have 33" and 3" lift and fit in 6'3", although I prefer 6'6" hehe. I would def measure though.. in my parking garage there are lower spots where clamps are on pipes, etc.

    you should join www.CT4WD.com the local club in Calgary!

    Be careful about the ingress/egress ramps, that's where you'll be closest as your truck might actually gain some height due to the uneven ground.

    +1,, especially the DCLB

    you could tell me the location and I'll drive my truck in the said parking garage and see if it fits.

    Take a friend over there with you.

    Then have him sit in the bed and be your roof spotter as you drive in and around. He should be able to warn you before anything happens and you can then back out from there.

    Beachboy you are correct I am in the oil and gas industry. The place is over in the Garrison Woods area but there is a garage door at the entracne so you would not be able to drive in and test it out for me. I appreciate the offer though.

    My 2 wheel drive Prerunner hit the antenna in a deck I was in, scared the crap out of me..:eek:... when I saw how close I was from the ceiling. No more parking decks for me.
