Tithonus 110 total height w/ hardtop

Can someone please give me a measurement to the top of the hardtop on a "factory" Tithonus. Want to see if it will clear my garage door.
Thanks

Thanks Doug,
Looks like i will need to switch over to a soft top if i go this route. I have 84" doors. Hard top would be tiiight fit, if at all.

Switching to a soft top won't reduce your height. It's the SD cage in these trucks that pushes the height up. You can either ditch the entire cage for a soft top + hoop set, buy a SW top, or have an internal cage made up to match the hoop set profile.

Mine sits closer to 7'3". It doesn't fit nicely through a garage door opening unless you air down the tires quite a bit.
