Wife is buying me a 4 post lift for Christmas :)
I'm working out the dimensions and making sure everyything fits where I want it. I know the FRQ specifications say that they're 48" high but I'm thinking that is the windshield and not the rollbar, is that correct? I don't have the windshield or rollbar installed on mine, can someone confirm the height of both for me? I need to clear the garage door opener!

Thanks,
Brian

Brian, As someone thats been where you're going (I've had both a 4 post and now a 2 post lift in my garage), if you're at a point where the door opener and/or trolley are of concern, get rid of them both!

I'd suggest looking into a Liftmaster 3800 torsion bar opener. Its very quiet and frees up all of that 'wasted space' above the opener and trolley.

See attached photo. The black/red box on the upper right corner is the opener.

i hope this helps you.

with the help of a friend and a level, i just went out and measured my MK3 with fat rollbar, wouldn't you know it, it's almost exactly 48".

don't forget the visors -if they are flipped up, they will be the slightest bit lower than the rollbar. of course, you can flip them down. the FFR rollbar is very upright, a characteristic of the car.

Brian, Here's where I got mine.

Garage Door Openers, Parts, and Remotes | Liftmaster, Genie, and More from North Shore Commercial Door

Best price so far. My local GDO guy in the Phoenix area wanted around $400 OTD, $500 installed.

They're at $325 and I found that when I tried to navigate away from the order page on their website, I got a promo code for an additional discount, which actually wound up shipping it for free from OH to AZ!

I'd highly recommend them and the opener!

Keep us posted.

HTH,
Will

LuvAZ, If you don't mind, I'm wondering what your ceiling and door height are??
Thanks Dave
