Lightbulb Chicago-Area Parking Garages.....

Ok. Thought you all might like to know.

I work at home in Indy and occasionally have to go to Chicago for meetings and such. Well, I found a parking garage that my truck would fit in!!!

My truck is NOT height-modified, not a dually, and is a short-bed. (but I did hack off 4 inches from the radio antenna just to be safe, which makes it still the highest point on my truck at exactly 7ft. high. )

My truck fit (tightly, but not too bad...) in the "Grant Park North" underground garage on Michigan Avenue. The entrance is approx. 100 North Michigan (Entrance is in the center of the street going southbound on Michigan Ave.. there's a little jog into the entrance lane about a half a block before the actual entrance. The entrance is just past a stoplight... once you're there you'll get it.. it's not that bad...I only went around the block once to figure out how to get into the garage).

Anybody else find parking garages their trucks will fit into in Chicago or Indy?

That is good info.

Got mine stuck one night here in Phoenix after a ball game. Tell you one thing...drunk pissed off people DO NOT like to be stuck in a parking garage behind a super duty wedged in the exit!
