    Need some sliders and a skid for my truck and everything I find online is based in the us. All the shipping estimates are crazy expensive and sometimes more than the product. Are there any fair priced canadian dealers? im in Newfoundland by the way.

    There arent a lot of choices for us but trail-gear.ca has a few things. They offer free shipping if you spend $750+ (I think?)
    Their prices aren't cheap either but what can ya do.
    The other option is to find a welding shop local and see if they will weld up some stuff for you. Might end up being the cheapest.

    You're in a tough part of the country to get anything unfortunately... Even if you did order from cruisin, the shipping would be a killer... Do you have A CTP Custom Truck Parts distributor or a Cap-It within reasonable driving range? They should be able to get you something at a not unreasonable price

    not really. lucky enough to have a convenience store in most towns around here. I know Il have to pay more than usual on shipping because of the ferry fee. If i cant find some il make some out of square tubing. just that I like the look of round tubing with a kickout but dont have a good way of making the bends. Prices on steel are quite high here aswell.

    If that's all that comes with that "kit" you need to weld some plates onto the ends of the frame supports. Welding that round tube right to the frame will be extremely weak. Some 3/16" plate that sits flush with the frame and wraps around the bottom would be best.

    I had a look at trail-gear.ca that Snowman posted, you should check them out, looks like they have those sliders with the plates on them i dont think shipping is a fortune with those guys either

    Just checked. The same sliders without the mounting plates comes out to be a few dollars more than from 4wheelparts. Shipping and fees are $135 which makes up the difference
