Total Height with 2.5" lift, 1" body lift, and 33's?

Does anyone know how high they (your TJ) sits from ground to the highest point? I have clearance bars in my underground parking lot and i want to make sure i wont be anywhere near them.

I'll need someone with 2-2.5" lift, 1'' BL, and 33s. Thanks in advance

It should be pretty easy to figure out.

Current height
+ 2.5" from the lift
+1" from the BL
+ (33" - current tire size)/2 from change in tire diameter

Keep in mind that free advice can frequently be worth less than you pay for it.

Stock height with soft top (hard top is not as tall) = 70.9 inches (Jeep Specs).

Assuming stock 215/75 15 tyre and 33" tyre are accurate sizes, height gain from tyre is. (33-27.7)/2 = 2.65"

And also assuming suspension/body lift heights are accurate.

70.9 +2.65 +2.5 +1 = 77.05" or 6' 5"ish.

What is the clearance marked on the garage? I have 3" suspension and 33's and haven't had an issue anywhere yet other than my CB antenna hitting things.

Not even close.My 35's with 4" SL and 1" BL is 6'5"-6'6".It must be the "tyres" instead of using tires here.

It might not be close to real life but is accurate given the assumptions made.

I know my 33" tyres are closer to 32" in actual diameter and the height will also change depending on rim width and tyre pressure. It will also change due to spring sag with age. The assumptions used simply give worst case (max) height where clearance is limited, "tyres" or not.

Ive never been good at math =P

Clearance is 6'10" in some spots, 6'7" in others... dont ask why.

I have 2 tops; the stock hardtop and rampage bowless (which i would imagine would be even smaller the a stock softtop) I was fairly confident that i would still have a decent amount of room to spare, Thanks for all the input. Anyone know how much a roof rack would add? LOL

Have 33x12.5s with 2.5 RC w/ 1.25 BL lift, total is 74.5" to top of soft top. I park in a 6' 8" garage everyday, no issue, with about 6" to spare.
Also, tires will make a difference as well, mine are labeled 33's, but are actually ~32, then aired down for proper wear, so my tires are actually about 31.5"
