Question Jeep Height Needed: 2dr, RK 3.5" w 37's???

I'm currently looking at purchasing a new home and unfortunately the garage door opening is only 6' - 7" high (79") and I'm hoping it will be enough for the lift/wheels that I'd like to one day install.

Could someone provide me with the max height of a 2dr with:
- Rock Krawler 3.5 X FACTOR PLUS LONG ARM SYSTEM
- 37" Tires (I realize not all 37" tires are equal) like BFG KM2's which I know run closer to the 37" height.
- I currently only have a soft top and have no plans for a hard top..... not sure if that makes a big diff?

Thanks

37" wheels are going to look funny...

If you are concerned with height you might want to check out their 2.5" kits. I think that you will be fine with what you are running but I cant say for sure. I have tons of room with 2.5" and 35s/33s on both of my rides but they have flat hard tops on them.

The soft top has some "high" points, doesn't it? My TJs always did.

Good luck! Looking forward to the pictures.

2.5" BB, 35" MTRs on 15s, Rubi sliders - just the beginning

He is just being funny. He knows you meant 37" tires instead of 37" wheels.

For a 2 Door with our coils outfitted the way you are suggesting you should almost get 4.5" up front and 3.5" inches in the rear or more of a 4" lift.

Approximately

My 2008 Rubicon 2 door hardtop w/3.5 AEV lift and 35x12.50R17 Goodyear MT/R Kevlars measures ~76" tall. Add another 1" for 37s (one inch above and one inch below the hub). Not sure about hardtop vs soft top. It's gonna be close. Maybe you can rig something to prop the door open? Hope this helps.

My jeep would fit in a garage that is 6' 7" high with about 1 1/2" to spare. I measured with my top off, but i have a trek top and it doesnt increase the height except for the thickness of the the top material. I also have a 1" body lift.
