    I am going to order the OME lift kit for my '09 access cab 4.0 litre. Not sure If I'm getting 884's or 885's (no future plans for bumper, or uca's, etc at this time).

    Because I live in Vancouver Canada, I am getting it shipped to a PO box across the border. I need to know where the OME kit is manufactured (australia?) and the toytech aal's? If they are manufactured in north america, I don't have to pay duty, only canadian taxes.

    Can anyone help me out?


    also, how do i get the TW discount at Toytech??

    Thanks!

    About 100% sure they are made in Australia. The U.S. headquarters for ARB is in Renton, WA (suburb of Seattle). That's where everything comes into the U.S. at

    Thanks guys, looks like I will have to pay duty.

    any canadians know how much? It might be worth to spend $200 more and buy it here in Vancouver.
