    They're from Elite Offroad.

    The lights for the license plate are some super slick LED's mounted in the bottom of the mounting hardware I picked up.

    I also have a front tow hook which the first gens have and the associated hardware if any of you guys wanted to add a second one in place or in addition to the loop in the drivers side.

    The fit on the Elite was pretty good. I had to weld on some brackets and cut my frame where you wont. So my fitment and measurements (or lack there of) caused me to have to make some of the holes bigger on the bumper. But other than my screw up it was pretty straight forward to get it on. The biggest annoyance is that it's a pain in the ass to use a ratchet inside the bumper to get all the hardware snug.

    I thought they were out in the valley though. North shore would probably have some closer shops.

    Those closer shops will bleed you dry for install. NSOR wanted $2000+ to install coilovers and add-a-leafs. :eek:

    While I am at it, if any of you guys are looking for parts.. dont go to Cap-it! I have had nothing but POOR experiences with them.

    Lost/Wrong invoices, parts that never got shipped, and laughable customer service.

    Not impressed.

    That probably included the Coilovers and leafs though, right? I think they charge like $80/hour last I asked, so that'd be a 25 hour install :p

    It never hurts to ask them for a quote

    took me 10 hours to install my new coilovers, leafs, rear shocks and shackle flip, and that is with completely removing the bed and rear bumper. no power tools besides an air chisel and a grinder to get the stock shackle mounts off. it really isn't that hard, just plan out how your going to take it apart before you start.

    cap-it in chilliwack got me a set of 885x's in 3 hours so i could make my wheeling trip and covered the express shipping, and they matched a ridiculous sale price from the US on a 22inch rigid combo led bar with 2 dually fog led lights for my brother in law, it all depends on who is behind the counter. so don't group all the cap-it stores together.

    So far I've gotten everything ARB at cost from cap it. They even threw in a $100 manifold with my locker, and it got here in 1/2 the time any other shop could get it. It was actually cheaper to buy it from cap it than it was straight from ARB.
    You just need to go it knowing exactly what you're getting, and the competitors prices, and they'll beat them. But if you act if you don't know what you're doing, they'll dick you around.

    That said, NEVER get anything installed there! They will fuck it up. Cap it coquitlam quoted 2x the price of NSOR on a snorkel install and they literally said "it's because we don't know what we're doing"
