looking for a folded tower height confirmation for an 03 mc x-2 (zero flex flyer tower) on an mc da trailer. i'm pretty sure it's just over 82in. stock mc wheels and pretty sure original tires. obviously i realize it depends on rims and tires, but just wanting to make sure i'm going to get her in an 84in header, 83 3/4 with trim. driveway slopes uphill from the street onto the slab (backs uphill), which i'm pretty sure will benefit me. since the tower folds forward.

anybody who can put my mind at ease i'd appreciate it. tia.

Have an 04 X2, should be the same. It barley fits in a standard size garage. I have to let the jack all the way down to fit at the top. Has about 3 inches going in on each side

Brandon, sent you an email too, but here's the body:

Can you tell me a little more bout your setup? I'm stressing out a bit. Put a deposit down on an 03 X-2.

I've got 82 3/4in and my driveway slopes up a bit into the garage which I believe will benefit me since the tower folds forward.

I could remove the trim to get it to 84in exactly, but i'm hopeful, I don't have to do that.

Do you have an MC trailer? Single or dual axle?

Is your driveway sloped at all, or flat?

I'm also considering buying that $200 drop-hitch that lets you raise and lower.

I won't be able to uncouple the hitch and drop the tounge jack because of the slope. I don't think that would be safe.

Please let me know and thanks again for the reply.

I have a single axle MC trailer. I have to put mine in by hand because it is so close on the sides and I want to be extra careful I don't scuff it. The trailer should have little wheels on the back, they may hit the driveway right at the road because of the slope, but that is what they are there for. I think you might be ok, but you may have to unhook the boat to let the jack all the way down in order to get it in. Which looks like it would be pretty hard to do because you would have to push it up hill. However, I do know a guy that has a wakeboard boat with a sloped driveway like yours and he unhooks it from his truck and uses the lawn mower to push the boat in, since it is much lower to the ground and he can let the jack down which in turn will lower the height of the boat. I hope this helps.Good luck and hope you enjoy the boat. I love mine!!
