Measure your jeep currently. Add 3 inches. Then add one half the difference between 33s and whatever size tire you are running now. If that is less than the height of your garage it fits.

It'll fit with those mods on a 7 foot door. My garage door is 7 feet and my TJ has a 3.5" lift, 1.25" body lift and sitting on 33s. What I can't have on my Jeep when I pull into the garage is my CB antenna.

your only gaining around "4 total. take a ruler or measure from the tallest point of your jeep to the lowest part of the garage. on a side note when my wife and I were looking at buying a new house we always drove the jeep. if the jeep didnt fit in the garage we didnt even look inside the house
