How tall is a stock D90?

My 'concrete bunker' garage is 6'8" tall at the entrance and concrete support beams. My lifted RRC has only 2 or 3mm clearance with the roof rack and my Series III scraped until I put on smaller 265/75 R16 tires. As you might imagine, I'm always very concerned about height clearance.

Can anyone tell me how tall a totally stock 1994 D90 softtop is? I think stock tires for that year are 265/75, right?

Thanks!

The sticker on the visor of my truck says 82" to the top of the roof, and
90" to the top of the basket, but that was with stock suspension and 235x85 tires. I imagine 90s were about the same. May as well tear that sticker off with HD suspension and 255x85 tires. All I know for sure is with the basket off, I still had to get the sawzall out and relieve 3" from the bottom of the beam in the carriage shed to get the whore under cover. Ever try cleaning a foot of snow off one with a roll cage, like every third day?

Thanks guys- after doing some of my own research (1, 2) I think the height is 80.2" on stock 265/75 R16s. 80.2" is good. 82" is not so good for me.

I found a local stealership with two D90s for sale and will try to 'test drive one home' to see if it will make it into my garage this weekend. I should be able to confirm the exact height of a stock D90 at that point.
