The Commander VS The Parking Garage

While in New Brunswick NJ today I found that a 7'-9" parking garage cannot accomidate my commander with the tire on the roof rack. I hit a sign and then a beam supporting the floor above. No damage was done and I was able to leave successfully, I even got a refund from the lady running the booth. After a long search I was finally able to find the one parking lot in all of central jersey and lucky it was only a couple blocks from my destination (Stress Factory Comedy Club). Anyone else ever get wedged into a parking structure?

Before we went to the city, I measured the height so I knew where I could go. There were several garages I couldnt get in to.

I did measure mine but I have also been in a 7'-9" garage before and it fit. I was about 1.5" too high to fit under the low spots. so maybe the garage was miss-measured. In the future i'm not going to be stupid or lazy and just park in a parking lot even if its blocks away from where I need to be.

I forget what the height of the garages are in Denver, but I know if we're going to a Rockie's game that the rack will hit the signs, but I'm o.k. with respect to the beams - my spare fit up under the back though - no trailer hitch.

Never had an issue with the XK, but with my old ZJ, there were several signs that I'd knock around in parking garages with the roof and/or rack. ZJ > XK, as far as height went.

With the rack installed, I can only fit in 7'6" & taller garages. Without the rack I can fit into my regular garage. I also have a height reminder sticker in my truck with the minimum height on it.

I had to take my rack off in order to park in my garage at work, now with my new car I can put the rack back on.

I take the roof pod off if I don't need it as it really helps on the economy.
