    The antenna is 2-1/2” tall and is mounted on an angle. I couldn’t tell exactly how much it adds to the height. 2-1/2” is worst case.

    I believe that put this stock truck at 81-1/2” tall.

    My garage door is 82”. Yikes!

    I am in the same boat. Added a leveling collar to the front to raise it 2 in. When I pulled in the first day I wasn't sure if the truck would fit but it clears by about an inch at most from the satellite antenna. Still bothers me enough that I always back in with the sunroof closed so I don't have to see how close I'm cutting it every time.

    You have a 2019? If you raised it 2” it should hit an 82” high opening and you aren’t?

    Great news if that’s the case! My Raptor arrives Wed this week!

    Let me know how it works out for your Elite Marine with pictures. I hope to test drive one in the next couple weeks if I can find the time.

    Well was expecting to get the Raptor from my dealer this afternoon. We made a deal on Sat and he was to get the truck by Wed (Today) from another dealer. I called at 1:00 and was told the sales manager would get back to me about 1:30.

    I receive a call at 2:00 and the sales manager tells me the truck I wanted was sold.

    I called the other dealer and the truck was still there and they didn’t have another dealer requesting it.

    So my dealer lied and made a big mistake. I purchased my 2016 Lariat from them in 2016 and it’s the last truck or car I’ll purchase from them.

    I bought the truck from the other dealer and will pull up to Kunes Ford in Antioch this weekend to call the clown out!

    Why would the guy pull a stunt like this?? Idiot!

    Purchased the Raptor direct from the other dealer!!! What a great truck!

    And they will fit easily in a 82” door with 3” or more to spare!
