As If I Needed Another Issue

I`ve been PATIENTLY putting my CJ5 back together for the last year or so , it`s starting to look pretty good , my buddy and I are just putting the finishing touches on the body work . I HATE BODYWORK!!!!!!!!!! Just getting that off my chest . There`s been LOTS if issues along the way , if you rebuilt or have done whatever to your Jeep you already know where I`m coming from . I`m finally looking at the Jeep with the rollbar set in the tub and with the stock
31X10.50X15" tires on , it measures 6 ft. 11 inches from the ground to the top of the roll bar . I`ve got 33`s coming soon . <font color=red>NOW MY GARAGE DOOR IS A 7 FOOTER .</font color=red>
Am I going to have to de-flate the tires everytime I get home ? And yes , it has to go in the garage for security reasons alone . Do I finish it and just sit in the drivers
seat in the garage and make RRRRMMMMMMMMMMM sounds and pretend I`m driving (haha) .
It`s a LOT of work putting in a taller garage door too .

Re: As If I Needed Another Issue

I WOULD be really nice to have a pit in the garage.....
Just my $.02.

That is really a tough one, you can't mess with the roll bar, it's a Jeep not an Impala, so hydrolics are out, suspension???
