How tall are you guys on 40s? I want to go to 40s and I’m trying to decide on 2.5” or 3.5” lift. I am also starting to wonder if I’ll be able to fit in the garage.
How tall is your garage? I'm at approx 4.5-5" of lift and clear my garage with 3" to spare with the trektop(or my wife's old hardtop). With the factory softop it was too close for comfort. I want to say my garage opening is 83". Even when I first recieved my coilovers which were set to 8" with the included springs I could still fit in the garage with my softop down.:beer:

Looks like you've got about an inch of upward travel on the rear before you hit the back edge of your sliders. Hope you've got a ladder!
The prettiest one at the mall.
