Hello fellow Pathers! (is that a word?)

New to Pathfinder world and starting to get the customization bug for this beauty.
I am doing very basic things for now, just to add a little accent (ie: yellow fog-lights instead of clear, a bull bar, etc)

What I wanted to know, is there do people source their parts in Canada? I have no issues finding them in the states but then the shipping end up being at least 50% extra on top of the purchase price (understandably). An alternative I was thinking of is having them delivered to a "holding" service on the bordering city, and then going there to pick them up but was wondering if there is a better way of doing this.

Thank you!

Partsavatar.ca is usually good and sometimes cheaper than rockauto.

I use both, ship the rockauto parts to my US PO Box. You could use a border parcel service too but this only works if you are within 100km or so of the border.

Not to take advantage of your reply BUT:
Do you simply open a PO box and thats it, or is there a service you'd recommend?

First time doing something like this. Surely will figure it out eventually but hoping to rely on expertise
