Overall Height

I tried a search but came up with nothing. Question is: How tall is your SMB? I know they will vary (newer SMB's are taller) but i'm looking for the height of a 04' SMB 4x4.
Thanks

Re: Overall Height

I'm at around 8' at the top of the penthouse. With my new Thule rack and cargo box I measured it at 9' 6"
