    ok, here is the deal.... my lady wants her 2001 tahoe lifted.... ok no problem.
    she also wants it to fit in the garage.... ok, now we have a small problem!

    so what i have come up with..... i beleive that i can go up a total of 6" that is with wheel and tire. so i am looking at a 3" body lift.

    what is the best kit for this? im talking spacers bolts and brackets, fan shroud filler and body fillers?

    next... now that i will have the a 3" body lift.... what is the biggest tire i can fit?

    any body know if a good site that i can find a body lifted tahoe with tires. i am pretty sure i can go to a 305/ 70 and be good.... any body else have any suggestions?

    thanks

    Doug....

    this will be my first attempt at going up...... if it was to drop!!!!!! no issues... but now i have to go up and fit it in .... so what am i looking at for time on the body lift?

    sounds like you got a good woman there. i think you can cram 315s in there, but dont take my word for it.

    Yup, do a search

    I had 9" lift and 36x14.50 and my 2000 silverado fit in the garage with 1" to spare (top clearance). If you have an auto door opener hanging from the ceiling thats another story.

    Get a friend to bring over a lifted truck and see if it clears. Alot will depend on the slope of your driveway. My truck fits fine with a standard garage door because of the slope of the driveway. By the time the cab clears the door, the rear tires are still on the transition slope of the driveway. No way it would fit with a flat driveway.

    305's are about all you can fit with a 3" BL. I think that would look good and it would give you about 4 inches of total lift.

    JB,
    I NEVER would have believed that without a pic. My previous truck was a '94 with a 3" BL, and 33" tires. It barely fit in my 7' door, probably had 2-3" max to spare and my driveway is sloped upward, which will help clearance.

    My obs 99 tahoe barely fit. 4" TM with 33's. In fact, it would just bump the roof rack.

    my 97 tahoe is about 1/2 an inch to tall to fit in the garage. Maybe if I let some air out of the tires.....

    My yukon fits in my garage with about 2-3 inches to spare. I have the Rancho 4-6 lift with 285's. I think I would have just enough room to fit 305's if I wanted. I have a 9' ceiling with a garage door opener. Garage door is 7'.
