Unlimited Sahara overall height after 4" lift and 37's

Does anyone run a 4 suspension lift and 37's with a hardtop?
I am trying to figure out if I will fit in my garage after its lifted.
Im running a 4" Rough country lift with 37" Kumho KL71 tires
Can anyone with this type of set-up measure for me?
My math is as follows:
Overall height 72.1 inches + 2.5 inches (difference between tire size from stock) + 4 inches (lift) =78.6 inches
Garage opening 79.2 inches !!!!!

Can't directly help you out, but a couple thoughts:

You might lose a little height due to the sidewall compression at the bottom of the tire. How much? No idea.

Don't whip it into the garage with the softop in sunrider position...

Also depends on the actual amount of lift you get vs. the advertised amount. I know some lifts tend to net more then promised.

With the hardtop on you will be right around 78 inches. I can just clear a garage that's 6'8" with the hardtop on or off. Can't make it with the soft top up though.
