I have the same problem. Would like to get my RAM in the garage at least when we go away on Vacation. I thought that I could get it in there on an angle however after taking some measurements it would be a very tight fit so it seems unlikely (haven't totally given up yet). Does anyone know if temporary storage for a couple of weeks is an option worth looking at ?

This is where I get to park when I feel like messing with the manual gate. In the coming weeks I plan on installing the power hydraulic opener. This pic was taken before we closed on the house. The ivy and lattice has been removed, the billions of bugs killed and cleared out, all of the grass between the wall and pavement killed and yanked, put down some of the weed/grass mat and covered with marble chips. Just waiting on the opener and paint. I'm considering doing a cover over it so it'll practically be a garage...pending funds and wife's approval.

for the garage, i would see if you could get a permit & add 3 or 4 foot to the back of the garage, that would give you either walk around room, or even a work bench
other than that, you could build a carport, roof & 2 walls against the house or garage

probably, but you might have to buy it for a month. They have all kinds of different sized garaged to put stuff in.

Cheap route: Roll pan

Expensive route: extend the garage. But if you go this way, It wouldn't cost you much more if you added 10ft or 1.5 feet. you still have to blow out the back wall and set up the foundation and slab.

Mine won't fit into the garage, either. It's too tall and too long! But that's not a problem...my Chrysler fits and that's all that's needed.
I partially second that! My girl's a bit too big, but the SRT8 fits and that's all that matters.

I guess I'm lucky getting my Crew Cab in the garage. Where my front bumper stops there is space for a washer and dryer.

I moved the washing machine over a little and the dryer is on the left hand side of where the truck sits, so I have about 2 ft to play with.

Does anyone have any suggestions???? Besides saying "It's a truck, it belongs in the driveway" as I got from my dad. I'm thinking about shaving down the studs in the garage, but I need my uncle's opinion before I do that since he is a builder/contractor.
so whats the plan, what are you thinking of doing?
