I took my Armada to a garage once when I worked in NYC and they turned me away due to the height (not to mention they usually charge an additional fee for SUVs ).

I found one on 1st ave (in midtown - around 40th street) that would fit my truck. The garage was in the basment so going up to get out when I was leaving I literally could not see anything. The incline was so great that all I saw was my hood.

I avoid taking any car to the city.

I'm stock height, for now, and have had no issues. I did have a scare last year when I was parking in the Superdome. The rack on top hit the height bar in the garage. The attendant told me that I would be able to fit. I believed her. Every time we hit a ramp I ducked, like that would help. We fit no problem. I guess in the Dome they have some safety factor built in. But I am going to do a mini-lift so that will end the parking garage ability.

Planning to take a trip to Vegas in the mada this July, I'm at stock height. I normally stay at Ballys, Rio, New Orleans, or Ceasars and they all have parking garages. Ceasars is the only one I think doesn't have a lot to park unless you valet.

Is 6'6" the standard for garages? Something I gotta keep in mind now when I take this sucker out of town.

im out in LA and ive a 2012 qx. 6 foot 7 for the Q (stock) and lots of garages here in this old town are barely that height.. most are smaller, even down at santa monica.

6 six is what ive seen out here as standard. luckily where I park at in Hollywood for the job and at home are both over 8 feet in height...

I guess there are always downsides to great things...

maaaan, when i go out on a date or to meet up with folks, i always try and google street view the area to see the garages and the sizes. most of the time i can zoom in and see the height. i do NOT like street parking and HATE VALET! I will drive a couple of blocks to get a garage or to self park..

dont get me started bro...
