Thankfully we're 2 hours west where every other vehicle is a pickup or a Suburban and parking spaces are made for larger vehicles.
You won't hit the roof of a normal parking garage, but don't have anything on your roof rack! Now, squeezing into a parking space is another matter. I usually look for spots I can back into, then pull straight out. It's doable, but a pain in the city where spaces are sized for small cars!

The Minneapolis Convention Center Ramp has a 6'9" clearance and we have an air ride system in our truck so it was pretty dang close!

A Tacoma is still a great truck for a weekend sportsman with two Labs and an aluminum bass boat.
Toyota has not yet entered the 3/4-ton plus market yet. It might be some time before we see a dooley Tundra with a gooseneck trailer over it's box.
