With the 3.5" Gamechanger and 40x13.5 Milestar Patagonias, my JLUR sat level to the eye at about 79.5". With the 4.5" MC springs and same tires, it sits level at 81.5".

Here's a couple shots I took while slowly creeping through a parking garage in Chattanooga that was marked 7'1" (85"). Would've been a no-go if it had speed bumps throughout. My am/fm antenna is 3" shorter than stock, which is why it wasn't dragging like the gmrs antenna. In the 2nd pic, you can see that the overhead concrete beams taper down over the actual parking spots. I could only park on the roof without leaving its ass hanging out in the isle of the lower levels.

You should be just fine with your 83" limit.
Awesome details 👍🏻

My Gladiator on 5 1/2" of lift on 40's (KR3's) fits in my 7 foot garage with about 2" to spare. I usually run 37's for daily though (we throw on 40's and an extra puck for wheeling trips). But it did fit before I went to Moab last time.

Mike, welcome to FL! I just wanted to point out that I can’t think of anywhere in FL, off-road, that requires 40s.
No argument there, you are right. I didn't know a place this flat existed until I got here! Of course I don't NEED 40's, I also haven't needed numerous 1000hp Vipers and Zo6's over the years, I don't drive anything stock. I also don't plan on staying here full time, it's just too hot. I'm a west coast guy and want to go back to the mountains!

Not much if any. Here's a pic of one with a Mc 3.5 game changer & 37s next to mine
