Overall height - E250 2WD w/penthouse?

Searched but only found info for 4x4 vans. Any 2WD guys/gals out there that can tell me the overall height with the penthouse top? Mine's a 2003. Trying to figure out shipping options and a shipping company told me anything over 7' won't fit in a car carrier.

Thanks!

Yeah. I find it really hard to believe that there's not any vehicle transporters out there that can haul a vehicle over 7'. Still looking around.

Not sure this will help because mine is an 89 E150 running 235/75R15 tires with about half the tread gone. The measurements were taken with a straight edge laying on the very front and back edges of the penthouse roof.

Front - 80-3/8"
Rear 82-3/4"

If your rig is to tall you could installing some smaller wheels and tires for shipping purposes. Load the original tires in the van and then swap at your destination.

7'2" to the top of the solar panel for our 2005 E250 2WD with 16" stock wheels. Solar panel + brackets total about 2.5". I've posted the height on the dash to help me remember not to enter any low clearance garages.
