2012 Jeep Wrangler: Garaged With Inches to Spare

March 15, 2013

2012 Jeep Wrangler

Lift kits on Wranglers look cool and of course increase the Jeep's already impressive off-road capabilities. But if you like to keep your vehicles garaged, or have to because there's no driveway and you live where street parking is tough, you may want to do a little homework before you jack up your Jeep. As you may know, we installed the Mopar Pre-Runner suspension kit on our Wrangler which includes a three-inch lift.

Knowing it was going to be close, I carefully approached my open garage and stopped to check the clearance when the Wrangler's windshield was close to the opening. After that I pulled partly in and snapped the photo to show the clearance. Just a few inches worth, but thankfully enough.
