The 5.0TA is about 9' 7" tall. If you add a lift to the axle, or put on a Jack Antenna, you will be adding to this. This is one reason I did not get an antenna and will use a mast mounted one instead. I never got the raised axle either. I had it on my 19, and even with doing a fair bit of gravel and dirt roads, never felt I really needed it. I can easily fit it inside a 10' O/H door.

Interesting. Our 2016 5.0TA, with high lift axle measured at 10'-4" per Reace at the factory when we picked it up. Installed on our RAM 2500 that has tall bed... Maybe once snow melts and I re-hook, I will re-measure again��. At factory, tanks were empty i believe and all our gear was not added yet. Also we had Jack Antenna.

If you have the Jack Antenna Ernie, that sounds about right.

I figured if the doorway was 14 foot tall it would be the same as most semi-truck trailers. I used to strap a 17 ft canoe on top of an earlier rig...........
