This is something I have to keep an eye on myself. I have an older house and only have about 76-77 inches of clearance for my garage.

I think I should be okay with the stock rubicon that should be around 74 inches. I'll have to see what happens down the road with my tires. I'm thinking I probably might do some 35's without a lift and leave it at that. And I'd be fine if they were "smaller" 35's lol. But I'll be running through the standard tires first so I'll have a couple years to ponder it.

Jealous of you guys with normal height garages! Our current garage has a large support beam running horizontally across the center of the parking area.

... So I have 75" total clearance with the door open. It gets tricky jacking it up to work on!

Fits fine in my 8' doors garages, BUT I limited my lift to 3" and 35s on my Rubicon due to downtown parking lots that are only 6' 10". Leaves me only a few inches to spare, and have to take CB antenna off (use a quick disconnect).

I wish it would, but I have three vehicles and a two car garage. Being a Wrangler (not supposed to be pretty), it's the odd one out.

I have a 2019 JLUR with 2” Mopar lift and 37’s at 30 psi. Garage is 7’, but around 82” opening with all the trim and weatherstripping.
Jeep sits around 76.5” with hard top and 79.5” with Trektop Ultra soft top closed. Plenty of clearance with hardtop, but a lot less with soft top. Definitely not enough clearance when the top is flipped back. Need to close it or drop it all the way down in order to fit in the garage.
You will also want to factor in other variables as you’ll lose some clearance if driveway slants down like a parking garage or if you would have hard packed snow at garage entrance.

Still on stocks in a standard Aussie garage which would never EVER fit a gladiator.

If your driveway is direct to your street, better consider booting it.
Fortunately I live in a quiet neighborhood on a cul de sac at the end of long lane and the Jeep is concealed by the house. All that aside, there's never a guarantee the azzwipes won't visit and I compulsively have to check each morning to ensure it's still there.
