    I just bought my 76 Jimmy a month ago and have been learning more on this page than I do in school, now the questions I have are... Xenon or Bushwacker flares? What is the best looking soft top out there (i'm not big on drilling)? Is anyone located in canada and possibly selling parts?Are there any good suppliers in Canada?(to avoid paying $$$ for shipping and duty)

    i like the xenon's, but i think the bushwackers stand up better.

    I find if there is a Canadian distributor they generally screw you worse than the shipping would have cost you. I like to support local business when I can, but I'm not independantly wealthy so I shop online now and then.

    If you're reasonably close to the US border get a shipping address at a border town and bring the new item across into Canada yourself. There is no duty as long as the product is made in the USA, but you will have to pay GST.

    I'd check the Specialty Tops Fast-Trac top. Nice top and less drilling than the old style. As far as I know Steve will be selling them through CK5 soon...

    Save the middle man and order direct, it will save you money.

    I know I am asking again, BTW thanks! But is there any opinions out there on what is better for fender flares, i dont go off road too much, but I have the option of Xenon or bushwacker, and I'm not sure which are better, durability, warranty, etc!
