It's only worth it if you want Free shipping and like to save money. I saved a ton of money on the 2 packages I bought. Many companies use UPS from the US and it's a complete ripoff.
If I lived an hour away I wouldn't do it, but ten minutes away to save a bundle, I'm in. Just filling up my gas tank at $3.75/gallon pays for the toll and the package fee.

For me Ogdensburg is an hour away, I have to save at least $50 overall for it to be worthwhile for me. Not really a fun town to make a day out of. The novelty of deep fried cheese curds from the A&W has worn off :P
I often ask myself, would I pay $30 extra on shipping to not have to go to Ogdensburg? For my last order I ended up going with Summit Racing. Shipping was just below that threshold.

|Doutchie||I get what you're saying, but as I said, I don't know anybody in border towns and I live at least 400-500 kms away from any border. Not possible for me.|
|04-22-2013 08:04 PM|
$789.90 + tax = $892.59
$644.99 + taxes at the border is around $730. I could have saved about $160 if I did it. If you knew someone in a border town they could have picked it up and shipped it to you for about $50 and you'd still be way ahead.
I filled up my tank in gas and saved about $30! When I go over I make a day of it, buy other items and save big. I'd rather spend my money in Canada but I work hard for my money and if I overpay for everything that's less mods I can make to my Jeep. I'm a 9 to 5'r and can't afford to overpay for everything when saving a ton of money is a ten minute drive away.

|Doutchie||I decided to order my Trektop NX at the local CarQuest today. Being in Northern Ontario, it's not feasible for me to get it shipped to a US address (that I don't have anyways). And besides, the fuel cost for me to get there would greatly surpass the difference in cost. I bought it for 789.90$ plus tax, no shipping.|

As an update... $320 worth of goods declared - let us go
Saved about $100 in shipping + brokerage + CDN taxes + 20% on the items. Glad I live in a border town.

If I wanted that top, that's what I would do. Looking around in Canada for US prices will just disappoint. Check the rate to your city and see if it's feasible. They are a vendor on this board, maybe give them a shout.

I just bought from 2 US retailers, with my Canadian credit card, shipped to an American address. I'll be notified when the packages arrive... go pick them up. $5 fee/package.
Price of shipping to Detroit, FREE.
The small package was quoted as shipped for $37.50 directly to me, the big one I didn't bother getting a quote. Add on brokerage fees and I would have been buried. Think I'll save a lot of money this way. Too bad you need to be close to the border to do it.
Sorry, this really doesn't help most of you guys but you can't get USA pricing in Canada. We overpay for almost everything here.

Every time I call National4wd in Smiths Falls, they quote me more than it would cost me to have something shipped to my house. As much as I like supporting local shops (still an hour away from me) I can't afford to pay more just out of charity The only benefit I see is that if i'm really in a pinch or impatient, I could have it that same day. But most things can wait.
For example, they quoted me $700 for a set of 4 ProComp 16x8 1069s. $20 more than it would cost me to get it from Summit. When I questioned this, they told me it's because they're passing on the cost of freight from the warehouse... Similarly, their site says $159 for the AEV Procal. But the guy on the phone says $199 plus tax... Sure.. that might be a liiiitle bit more than what it would cost to have it sent to my door - but I think listing it on the site at $159 and telling me something else on the phone is kind of misleading... Perhaps i'm seriously misunderstanding the purpose of the Smiths Falls store, Maybe they're more of a mechanical shop? I'll be honest, i;ve never been there, but to me they come off as those shops that say "pfft... where else ya gonna go?.. go ahead, TRY ordering one from the internet, you'll come out worse!"

National4wd is also pretty expensive. Locally seems the way to go for me.
Here are the prices that I found.
Jeeparts.ca = 821,09+199,46(shipping) plus tax
NorthshoreOffroad = 863,84+56,80(shipping) plus tax
National4wdonline = 886,19+61,99(shipping) plus tax
Gemini-sales = 749,95+175,91(shipping) plus tax
Justjeeps = 849,95+150(shipping) plus tax
Partsoutfitter = 849,95+105,56(shipping) plus tax
Northridge4x4 = 917,94 + tax (no shipping)
Action car and truck accessories (local) = 1035 plus tax
CarQuest (local) = 789,80 plus tax
I can't believe the different prices.

|mackdj1||You could look at just jeeps. I believe they have a canadian site there is also one based out of New Brunswick but I can't remember the name. I'll look it up.|
|04-03-2013 07:36 PM|
|Dan2012||Not as of yet :-P They have a warehouse in Cornwall so I think it was probably shipped from there. I think they have a warehouse out west as well if that's closer to your neck of the woods.|

|Dan2012||Not in canada, but 4wheelonline sells them for $599 and with shipping it comes for $714 (I know because I bought one). HOWEVER...I would be careful because I got double-charged originally and had to jump through hoops to get the money back. Once I got it sorted out it was shipped quickly though, so there is that.|

I have been looking all over the place for the best price on the Trektop NX for my 2012 JKU. Here is what I found. The best price is the local CarQuest shop for 789,80$ plus tax. Ironically, the highest price is also a local shop, Action Car and Truck accessories for 1035$ plus tax.
Online, the best price I found, including shipping is Northridge4x4 (free shipping) for 917,94$.
Has anybody seen this top for less in Canada?

|woansleftpeg||Order stuff into UPS Ogdensburg, then drive down and pick it up. I'm currently saving hundreds of dollars on stuff I'm buying in the US at US prices, even with the cost of gas and duty.|

"Class II rating
A trailer hitch rated to safely tow 3,500 lbs. or less. Trailer Tow w/4-Pin Connector Wiring"
This is what it says on Jeep.ca. I know little about trailer hitches... If you are local, let me know.

|bucky24||Hey st1264, do you have the info for the hitch you're selling? I'm lookin'|
