Awaiting: ‘21 F250 Lariat Tremor 7.3L
Hi All,

looking into buying a carport for my beast. I have a 2 car garage that would fit it but my wife's tahoe is on one side and my home gym is on the other. They have a 12’ W x 24’ L x 7’ H option. I’m pretty sure the width and length should be fine, but am worried about the height.

Does anyone have measurements they could provide? Or even thoughts on whether or not those dimensions would work for the stock Tremor?

Thanks!
 
Stock height is 83 inches.
 
A 12' wide door is very good. My garage has 10'ft wide doors and with the mirrors out I only have about 4" on each side.
 
Mine fits in a 7 ft (84”) garage with about an inch clearance. I had to take the trim pieces off and have a level approach to get in. It’s tight but fits! Also, I made sure the garage door and opener where at least 84” off the floor.
 
It will fit in a 7' tall door but you need to check the weather strip and make sure the door opens all the way. they may be a bracket on the opener that needs to be trimmed.
 
I would go 7 and a half or 8 foot to be safe. Why get something custom with only 1 inch of clearance? unless the cost is a major difference
 
My 7.3 f250 without moonroof would not fit in a 83” opening by about half an inch. So if it’s 84” your good. And all depends on your package as each option adds weight. I ended up doing a reverse level block and it fits at home and at work.

This may be a stupid idea... But, hear me out... I'm a redneck and I do this kinda stuff all the time... Hold my beer...

When they install the car port, it'll be on
skids and the skids will be tied down to the ground for wind protection...

How about, you put down a single layer of cinder blocks on each side, then the skids sit on top of the blocks, and then you tie down the skids...

That would raise the car port by another 4 or 6 inches!
 
Don’t forget to measure with the clearance lights if you have them.
 
All helpful feedback folks, thanks! The car port was not going to be custom built, it was one of the ‘out of the box’ options.

I do like bama coasties idea though!

I may just end up getting one of the collapsible wall mount power racks and get rid of the bulkier home gym and park it in my garage.

Thanks for all the feedback!
