Clearance height?!

I'm getting ready to put a lift on a JK for somebody in their garage! It's a 2.5" lift and it'll be on 33s and it's a hard top. Does anyone know how high the top of the jeep will be? I'm just trying to make sure I'll be able to get it out of their garage when I'm done! Similar lift sizes and such would help too. Thanks in advance!! P.S. - I haven't been to their house yet so if it's close to what you guys say then I'm just gonna do it in the driveway but the garage would be preferred.

I fit 4" and 35s in my garage and i thought i had a short garage door. If i had to guess youll be fine, but im not sure on measurements. If i recall i was about 78 just take your height now and account for say 3" lift and the tire difference.

I wish I had that problem. It will fit in my wife's garage.
But it wont fit in mine and it is still stock for now. Low ceiling and it would hit the bar that opens/closes from the garage door opener.
Didn't think I would have had a problem when I bought it because I put a spacer lift on my 94 ZJ with ski racks and it fit.

I had the same problem on my '09. Total height will depend on the particular brand of lift and tires (they can vary over ~0.75"), 2DR vs 4 DR and even weight (bumpers, tire carrier, etc) if you are cutting that close.

I clipped my antenna so it was exactly 1.5" higher than my roof with just the driver and minimum gas as my collision detection system.

Thanks everybody! I ended up doing it in the driveway because of the amount of slope in the garage. Also they didn't have the new tires on yet so I didn't have to worry about those.
