Default 4" lift w/ 35's

Hello,

I have 2011 Ram Sport 4x4. I am looking to put a 4" lift and 35's on it.
My question is, will it still fit in my 7' garage?

By math it looks like it will fit but I would like to hear from some people who have this set up. If you have this set up what is the height of your truck?

Thanks in advance for your response!!
Tyler

Your MegaCab is 78" with or w/out the lift and tires? I though they were about 78" tall stock?

The specs on my 11 ram sport 4x4 are 76.3" tall. So if i add the 4" lift with 35's then i'm assuming i will be adding about 5.5" to the height of the truck.

I just don't want to get it all done up and then not be able to put it in my garage!

What type a lift are you thinking? I am researching for the same exact setup. My goal is so that I can park in the 6'7" and over parking at my work.

I have a 2.5/1.5 level it with 285/65/20 and I won't fit in a 6'7 garage. I need at least 6'8 to 6'9 to fit without hitting.

Do you have the ready lift? How do you like it? That is my other option, to go with a leveling kit and throw the biggest tires i can on there without rubbing.

After looking at my garage I pretty sure i will be able to fit the 4" lift kit (either BDS or Superlift) and 35's without problems but now i'm just debating about the "lift kit" or just a level?

My wife is prego and she is really against the lift. She thinks it will be to tough for her to get in and out!! lol, so i might just wait until after we have the kido and then put the lift on.

Thanks for all the input.

the tires will only lift it another 1.5-2" if your tires you had on it before were 32". 35-32=3 so 3inches is left, but then you have to divide that in half because 1.5" goes on the bottom of the tire and 1.5" goes to the top. the tire size increase below the fender doesn't matter, just the tire increase from the ground to the bottom of rim.
