Question How tall is your ride?

I have an 08 1500 and I was wondering about lifts from 2 - 6 inches with 35" (or metric equiv) tires. I want to lift as much as possible and still fit it in my garage. I would just like some imput on the overall height if possible. Thanks in advance!

Thank you! I really appreciate your input. I've been holding off on pulling the trigger on my lift till after Christmas and a little insight from the forum.

I still have not measured it yet, but I would estimate 7 ft at low end of the radius. I have a Yakrak on top of my truck and will remove it if necessary but would prefer to avoid. I'm leaning towards 3" suspension lift with 33" ish tires and calling it good.
