I've got one tennis ball that slaps my back up camera right in the lens when it's in position. I also have one that slaps my back glass right in the middle of the sliding window when I am there. I was parking in there with my wife's jeep this winter. Now, THAT was fun. I threw her out of the garage once it warmed up lol. Even with the *****, I am not brave enough to put all my faith in them. I still have to get out and check clearance and make sure the bumper is perfectly parallel with the wall.
I prefer to back in so that I can get to the driver side without opening the garage door and walking around the side (annoying to have to either open the door, or climb over the truck by using the tires as a step to get into the bed and crawl over). If I parked on the other side, I'd block the entry to the garage.
I measured my garage just now at the expensive of slicing open a finger with the dang tape measure (durrr me say metal edge sharp). My garage is 234 inches. I believe the truck measures out, bumper to bumper, at 232.5.
And no, I do not hit the button to close the garage. I use the latch release to manually lower the door. Then I hit the close button and make sure the latch catches. My wife already shut the door on it once when I wasn't all the way in
I'd went inside and left it partway hanging out because I decided I was going out again shortly. Sure glad the safety bounce feature works. I can say it's been tested truck safe. I took away her garage door remote after that day, so now she has to use the front door to go outside to her Jeep.
