    I'm looking for someone with a sprung over cruiser on 35s or 37s. Can you measure the height of your rig from the ground to the top of the hard top. I'm meeting with a builder tomorrow night to discuss my plans for a new home. I want to make sure I can get my future cruiser in the garage.

    When you post your measurements, I'd appreciate it if you let me know how much lift you have, tire size, and if you have any kind of roof rack.

    FJ40 SOA on FJ55 wagon rears, 38.5 SX's aired up, no top, only rollcage, and it JUST clears my 7' door.....actually rubs the rubber surround.

    IMO, 8' is the minimum I would consider. Go 10' if you'd like to back it in while sitting on the car trailer (a definite bonus!!)
