ptramman is on a distinguished road

I just bought a 2012 Ram 1500 big horn 4 by 4 with the 20 inch tires and it clears fine on my door and the outside asplalt is actually higher than the garage. (had a 12 by 20 carport on the back of my house and enclosed it and it works fine.) It is very close on the length though--about 5 inches in back and front. I back it in to my "stop" 2 by 4s I nailed into the asphalt. I did have a 2010 4 by 4 Ram with the 17 inch tires and I can tell the difference. The antenna wiggles more as it hits the garage door as I enter. I might suggest if you that are close or can't make it to check to see if your garage door opener is set to raise the door as high as it will go. I had a new garage door opener installed about 6 months ago and made sure it was as high as would go--the professional did it for me. If you get them out of "whack" and don't know what you are doing you will be buying a new motor as I did. LOL
