    Why is it so hard to buy shit at a reasonable price here in Canada? I find parts for a decent price and it costs $300 to ship them here.

    Any of you Canadians find any places in Canada with decent prices?

    get stuff shipped to the border and go pick it up. I got my last lift shipped for 47 dollars, the place I use is called bettas services, but it's out west here, real shady but gets the job done!

    Worth the Drive! I used "ship happens" which is literally across the border in Sumas (hour highway drive for me). I got my bumper and a bunch of other bulky things. The border guys are so used to it, they are pretty lienient. but you're in N.S. so I'm not sure what border you would have to use?

    For tires though, I was going to get from Discount tire (in Blaine, WA), but after I price checked here - I got them for only $30 more per tire at a little local big O tire. Maybe you have tried, but do't overlook the little guys, they usually have more power to haggle than the large chains with huge rules. and only 15 per tire to put them on (none of that, "you have truck tires, it costs more" crap)

    The little extra that I paid per tire, was less than duty I'd have to pay, and I didn't have to ditch my old tires in a hurry acros the border or haul them back.

    Wheels - more expensive because of tariff and broker fees. I found NSOR was cheapest for the ones I got form American Racing. Or get them put on over the border and leave the old ones there to avoid claiming?

    he would have to drive more than 500km just to get to the border, not really an option for those of us than aren't near the border.
