Wow! That was so nice of you. I really appreciate your help and reassurance on getting the A in the garage. I'm a 5'3" former minivan mom of 3 year old triplets, lets just hope I have the skill to get this new baby in the garage with the few inches of clearance.

Look forward to corresponding with you.

Wow!!! Triplets!! I can't even imagine!!

Anyway..the good news is...the front corner of the bumper seems fairly scratch resistant. I have large shelves in the corner of my garage...that make it a really tight squeeze for me...(with the other car in the garage as well)...and I may have nicked the shelves a time or two...but no sign of it on the bumper....

One thing I did do...was took a two by four...you could use 2 bricks...and put them down where I wanted the front wheels to stop. Makes getting the Armada all the way in without hitting the wall( or in my case...the tools hanging from the wall) easier...

Great idea, 8. I picked up the truck last night and found that I had to get out of the truck a couple of time to gauge how much further I could drive forward without hitting the shelves along the front wall while still having enough room to have my rear bumper clear the garage door sensors. So glad to hear that your bumper has survived a couple of potential dings.

I have used one of the bike flags that I purchased from wallmart and I am hinging it upside down from my garage ceiling. I have hanged it in such a way that everytime I just have to match the yellow hanging ball to the top on wiper. Nothing touches the vehicle and everytime it is perfect parking. Even my wife can park the beast perfectly now :D

You'll be fine......After parking it for a while it'll be like second nature. I'm glad I could help. This is an awesome site to find new things and share experiences with the Mada'. You certainly purchased the right vehicle to transport your troops in. It's also assuring to drive such a beast knowing that it will take beating and keep you family safe. Take Care!!!!

I saw a neighbor's solution to that problem which made me want to do it:

Park it as perfect as you can in the garage with maybe someone helping you and then hang a tennis ball from the ceiling to mark your spot so that everytime you can get in the garage and stop when it hits your wind sheild.
There are also some rubber stops that they sell that are something like the stops in a car wash, you get over one bump and then your wheels get sort of locked in between bumps.
