    I have exactly what you are talking about doing. Easy. I use a 4 post Park-n-Lift in my
    3rd car spot. I have a 14' ceiling. I called a local garage guy who came out replaced the tracking with taller tracking up against the ceiling. There's no auto opener on this door but a side mounted one could be easily installed. Upper car (84 Monte Carlo SS) is about 10" below the ceiling fully lifted. Garage door clears the trunk by 8"-10" or so & stops just short of the top of the rear window of the car.
    Garage door Mod cost me $350.00 I think. Lift was 3K delivered to my Driveway.
    This door mod is NOT a job for the do it yourselfer on a Sat with a buddy. Trust me.
    Good luck

    You better let me get in there and paint it before you go putting lifts in!

    Or wait... a lift could possibly keep me from having to use a ladder... hmmmmm.....

    Is that house on the East side of ATL? I just moved down here and I could have swore that was one of the garages in a house I looked at.

    Depending on what you are playing to do, if you are just looking to stack your 2 cars add up the height of both cars plus 7 inches and that is all you need, if you wanna work on them in the top locking position usually 71inches plus the top car and 7 inches is what you will need. But it varies by lift companies, that is what our (Non Sponsor) require.

    Sorry for the delay. I have been away from the boards working so I can pay for my house. I just moved in a few months ago.

    My house is located in Marietta (East Cobb) Here are a few photos.

    i just completed a 600sf addition to my garage last year. it has 13' ceilings and all doors utilize the 3800 jackshaft. the doors are lifted to within 7" of the ceiling. i have a BP HD9-STX and no issues. you need to do the door modification and yes, this is not a "weekend" beer project.

    I have the same 3800 Liftmaster opener and a ProPark 8 4 post. While it does take some time, it's really not that difficult to do the high lift conversion. And you're right, it's not a weekend beer project, it's a Saturday afternoon project while sober, and then beer after you're finished project, at least it was for me and that was also converting from an extension spring to a torsion spring setup.

    If you want to DIY it, do a google search for garage door high lift conversion. There are places that sell you everything you need from the tracks to the correct springs.

    What everyone else has said. I just did the same thing, and my lift goes in, in about 3 weeks. I paid someone to do it and it was about $600 with the liftmaster opener all the rails and installed.
