Thanks Rhino, unfortunately the newer f150 cc I like would like require me to extend the garage a couple inches. I'm still actively looking at both the Titan (will fit) and the F150's (won't fit). It will be a tough decision when I decide to make it.

Made in USA. Don't care that they are put together here, I don't like sending my money to Japan.

DisDad01, if you're talking inches, IMO you should re-measure your garage to the very inch-right to where the garage door would brush against the truck and then measure the truck you like to the very inch. (Don't go by the specs if you are talking inches...) As long as you can close the door you are good. Also, if you are shopping locally, you could ask to test-drive it home & back before you sign the papers.

Don't forget to check how tall the door is.
my truck would fit in my garage if the door was taller.

What? Do you have a lift kit on it?

Maybe take some air out of tires!

X2, and also check how wide the actual opening is.

Our home was built in the 60's and my '14 Ram 1500 just barely fits under the garage door, just barely fits between the sides of the door (with the mirrors folded in, and just barely fits between the front wall and the garage door. So check ALL dimensions of the truck you want to buy. BTW my truck sits outside in all but the worst weather because it's such a pita to get in/out of the garage.

Yep already measured the f150 and its inline with the specs.

Updating this thread, finally found my truck, a 2012 F150 Crew FX4. Love it so far. Towed my trailer great yesterday. Thanks for all the help.
