    I'm currently pricing out an ARB for my 08 DC.

    Wheelers has it for $950 + $185 shipping to the border. - $1135 us + tax/duty

    North shore off road $1220 + tax $146 (12% gst and pst)? -$1366 can

    Has anyone recently brought one of these across the border? How much duty can I expect to pay on top of the taxes I will pay at the border

    i bet you it will be so close that it won't matter what you go with. but then again i have never been charged duty at the border for anything i have brought across, only had to pay the 12% taxes. another option is to get a fab shop like cruisin offroad to build you a bumper, and it will probably be less in the end. they do awesome work.

    I would like to get Jason to build me a bumper, cost would be the same.
    But I still use the truck for my daily driver, I usually have my two kids and wife in there as well.
    The ARB is the only bumper engineered to work with the airbag system, and the only bumper that does animal strike tests.

    I understand that other bumpers might be just a strong or stronger than the ARB, but the ARB is engineered to work with tacoma and its crash safety systems.

    Bottom line. I would hate to have a small fender bender and have the airbag go off in my wife's face, or a big accident and no airbag at all.

    What I did was purchase through Wheelers and pick up at the ARB distribution centre in Seattle. That way there are no shipping charges and Wheelers might even give you a deal as they just facilitate the purchase. Just pay HST at the border, save hundreds. Got an OME lift while I was there as well.
