My garage is 24' wide and 30' deep. I can fit my Dodge 4door and another small car...and a lot of other junk with no prob. We back both vehicles in.

With my old garage, it was a tighter fit, but it still worked.

haha, i love this forum. There sense of humor is great. If i were a redneck, i wouldnt be asking about the garage, i would be asking about the front yard lawn. moving on...

My dad mangaed to fit his lifted excursion in his garage plus another car. I measured my garage last night, and decided that it would be a tight fit, but that it would work. My only problem mis that my door to the inside of my ouse is offset, so i will most likely be covering part of he door, but then agin i woont be all the way against it either.

I was just wondering if there was anybody else that parked their rigs inside. A garaged truck, is a happy truck. :rockin

I can fit mine in my garage....barely. I live in base housing and I only have a one car garage. I have to fold in one mirror to pull in and my antenna hits on the way in. Once in, I have plenty of room....the house I live in was built in the 70s, so the big trucks of today weren't really thought of back then. Here are a couple of pics that I have...maybe you guys can get an idea of the fit. I may have to take a picture of the truck in the garage too.







I have to agree with your comment about a garaged truck.....mine is pretty happy now since it is like -25F outside right now....it is nice to get into a warm vehicle and not have to let it run for a long time to get warm.

I just personally like the security i get from parking it inside at night. Knowing that im not going to wake up ini the morning with a broken window is the best. o an egg to the paint. My wife parked her car outside one night, and now has a six inch area where the paint is eaten up. Eggs are a pain in the ass. Especially when you dont know about it for a while.

Oh well...I couldnt open the links for the pics, but i know what the base quarters can be like. close fitting...

thanks again guys...

you know whats funny, when i lived with my dad, i parked all my oter vehiclels outside and never thought about it. Bu now that i have a garage, i cant stand the thought of parking my truck outside over night. The day we moved in, i stayed up until almost 1 just trying to clear out the garage so that we could park both of our cars inside that night.

Im lucky right now. All i have is a jeep to park in there, i cant wait until i try to fit a full size pickup in there. should be exciting.

Mine sits outside most of the time i usually only put it in when its bad weather!!! Other than that it takes to long to get it out of the garage when i go on fire calls!!!!

My truck loves the out doors. I don't wan't to scare it with a garage.... It just won't run right :rolleyes:

I did put my truck in the garage once because it was suppose to hail................ The next day I was at the dealership ordering a new mirror and motor.. Seriously. :rant

I'm lucky enough to live 1000 feet of any main roads on a dirt road and our house is second to the last house there so I dont have to worry about anyone messing with my wheels.

Mine only gets inside when the wife's Sequoia is not there. It fits pretty well as long as you don't want to go around it.

Garage?

Mine is in the garage, though it would be nice to leave outside, just that I do not live in an area where there is no risk. The company vehicle, that one always sits outside. Would love to live in a place where outside was okay, as it should be.:help

I live at the end of a dead end road as well, but because there is a trailer park up the road full of less than desirable people I installed a security camera on the side of the house that points to the driveway. It has been up for about five years now with no problems thus far...
But if I had a garage I would probably use it...

Mine stays in a garage only when it's going to snow a few inches, and that's only because my side of the driveway is the side where we have to push snow. Otherwise, it stays outside. When it's in there, I have juuuuuuuuuust enough room for my truck backed up to the chest freezer and a few inches left for garage door clearance

and then there's the minivan that takes up the other side...
