Still not close to the US prices but will get you by. I've asked GR about custom stuff like sliders and such and the time they would charge to design would outweigh the cost of something like frog fab which has been proven on the trails we see in QC. Hit me up with a PM and I'll send you my build list I got quoted from GR. It'll give you an idea at least and for all that I want done it would be less than 3k$ in parts. Then the rest is either up to you to install yourself and learn or get some buddy to help out, and you've got a buddy in me :P
    I was wondering how you become a member of the clubs you mentioned ? Any discount is better than none, I agree!

    As far as I know, you don't need any permit to build / modify your Jeep.

    If you build your Jeep from scratch, then you will need to apply to obtain a VIN for your Jeep and send proofs that your car can be stable and safe on a normal road. Otherwise, modifications are not subjects to any permit but it is true that in Quebec, police will often pull you over to verify if your car is within the limits of the regulation. If you get pulled over and the police decides that you car seems unfit for the road, then you might need to go in for inspection. Note also that the law only prohibits low suspensions in inches (it was modified to prohibit dropped Volkswagen cars!) but also prohibits that a car has its frame too distant from the tires (6 inches I guess) so there is no real problem with modified Jeeps.

    The real problem in Quebec is when you have a sports car (Mustang, BRZ, Subaru, Lancer...) that has a modified exhaust and a lowered suspension. The police will pull you over for sure. Jeeps owners are safer than those

    The law says that any modified vehicle should be verified during a mechanical inspection but in reality nobody does it simply because the law specifies that if you modify your car in a way that could affect its stability then you need to get it inspected... You can understand that everybody thinks that even after modifications a car is still stable!

    You also have to get your inspected when you want a used car of a selected year determined by the government. That's what happened to mine but only because the used car seller I bought it from didn't want to sell me a car that would be pulled over by the police because it was modified.

    Finally, for our French readers (I know that there are some...) you can check that brochure https://saaq.gouv.qc.ca/fileadmin/do...artisanale.pdf

    Interesting stuff.

    Now I feel lucky. In NL once you have a car inspected you are done for life. Good for myself but sketchy with so many people driving around with falling apart vehicles.

    So lucky. Here no exhaust modification,no cold air intake and no metal bumpers unless you have a winch and assist in recovery for the government approved motor sports club.

    Had good luck with specials on northridge 4x4.ca, MNC performance in St-Alexis des monts, Amazon.ca

    Best bang for the buck is to buy in the US (even with the exchange rate) have it dropped to a shipping hub and install everything in the parking lot.

    I usually try and time it with a camping trip or when I go surfing in Hampton beach. Surfing in the day and wrenchin` in the afternoon is super Manly. Chicks love it

    La mention du 10 degrés de vision vers le haut lorsque bien assis est hilarante ! Je fais 6'4 je n'ai jamais eu ce luxe dans aucun de mes véhicule à moins de me pencher

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
