    Yeah, they installed my 5100s a few weeks ago. Did a pretty good job, a lot cheaper than i expected. I'll have them add my 1" block, driver side spacer, and put on my Duratracs in the next couple weeks. Where in NB are you?

    Can anyone tell me how things work when you cross back into Canada? Can you cross right back to Canada within a few hours and bring any $$ goods that have been made in usa/Mexico? Is it true no duty $ if goods are made in usa/mexico, just pay gst? thanks

    I have done it half a dozen times this year. Been in the states for about 15 min each time. You can buy whatever you want, you just have to pay duty on things not made in North America and you need to pay GST. Just find out where things are made first, calculate your gas used for the trip and you can make an informed decision on whether it is worth your while. You are going to pay GST if you buy it in Canada anyway so i don't normally factor that in.

    I bought tires, wheels and shocks.

    Another NB'er (Freddy) here.

    You guys should check out https://www.kinek.com/ they have shipping points all along the border. They give you an address to ship to with your account # in it and you just go pick it up. I have heard good things.

    I wish I were closer. The gas from Halifax to the border would kill any savings though.
