nice find!
FYI-a 110 with a cage will fit through the IN door at Prudential, but not through the OUT door.
Ask me how I know this


there is several feet of HVAC duct insulation missing courtesy of me.

Lift or stock? I always debated to take my truck to my office at Prudential but didn't want to risk it...

Its ROW w/ HD springs, so it sits about 1.5" over stock. I forget the measurements to the top of the wheel arch back then, but I remember it was roughly 1.5" high compared to Rufus' bone stock NAS 90 I compared to. that was before I installed the SD basket. Now with a basket......no question it's would never fit!


Yes, the Pru garage has a big bright yellow height restriction bar and it fit under that without issue.
It did seem as though I was going to shear off sprinkler heads the entire way through, but there was another 3" to the heads (that would have been a disaster). The issue was most likely a HVAC retrofit or repair where a contractor didn't observe the exact heigh spec, or maybe some anchor bolts or unistrut was sagging, who knows.....buuuut, when I went to exit and the flat portion of the deck meets a steep grade upramp, the front ends up about 6" higher (as the front axle is on the ramp and the rear axle remains on flat ground). I thought I was in the clear after white-knuckling the entrance all the way to the parking space. Top bar of the cage grabbed about 1" left hanging down on a unistrut threaded rod. Pulled the entire unistrut off, mangled the duct and pulled off the insulation. Cant believe I didn't get a letter from an insurance company with all the cameras. The Somali parking attendant could have cared less that I had insulation all over the roof.


Bottom line is don't go there.....or any other garage. Although at least with a cage all that happened to my truck was some chipped powder coating on the b-hoop top.


BTW, the only reason I even tried it is because I was late for a roof-top 4th of July party on Beacon St and all the streets were closed to vehicles.....and parking. It was a move out of desperation.

Drove past Copley today. Had a bunch of nice defenders upfront, and looks like a cool Unimog in the back. Didn't see the $250,000 beast. Must be in the back, covered in bubble wrap. :-)

Very rare to see another D90 here in MN...so I was totally surprised to see one in the parking lot at my neighborhood gym. My kid had to call it to my attention and even then I just assumed it was a jeep until I turned around.

I wonder what it's like to drive around a Rovers North top without an alpine bar?
