What are folks experiences with high lift axles? Does anyone know what height garage door you need to fit a 17B high lift axle in (and what you need to fit a non high lift in) - you guessed we are in the last stages of finalizing a build sheet.
We are thinking of a high lift as we drive northern BC roads, and are on back country roads at times. Our understanding is there is not much height difference over all. So mostly now interested in our storage in winter options.

Overall height will also be determined by whether you have air conditioning or not.
My recollection is that my 17B with high lift, without air, is 8' 4" ( not going to fit most garage doors ).
ETI specs say 8' 2" for 17B without high lift or air.

We had the high lift on the 5.0 when we got it and took it out when we got a different vehicle. We had it solely to be able to use a 4X4 tow vehicle. Gerri hated the high step into the trailer. The difference is 1.5". As long as you are on a road, pavement or gravel I don't think you need it.
