When you drove back home and crossed the boarder back into to Canada, did you declare the modifications, lift and 4x4 conversion? Did you have to pay GST on the conversion cost? Did you have to get an inspection (Canadian Tire) or is that not required when you modify a Canadian registered out of the country.

I’m not sure he should or will post an answer on a public forum - when I considered getting a conversion through Ford/Quadvan/Quigley, I consulted with a friend with Transport Canada and I was told that a US conversion would cause many issues, in addition to the taxes payable when I would re-import the vehicle.

I elected to modify the vehicle in Canada when a kit is available here, hopefully in the next year.

PS -

Yes, I really should create a build thread on this forum. I owe you guys this much given you’ve collectively been so informative, helpful and inspirational!

You hit the nail on the head I bet Wandering Bison no need to out oneself on a public forum for tax evasion.

Checked out your link and Instagram , you should do a build thread as you’ve done a great job. Love the window screens they look great.

Thanks all. After a lot of research, I also didn't do a US 4x4 conversion at either upfitter. Too many hassles, costs, and red tape. Let's keep this thread updated and post any Cdn-based 4x4 conversion that we hear of.

Now you could just wait and get a 2020 with factory AWD.

I know, and that's what I will do. But I wanted to share what I found. Actually, I was looking for something else and ran into that.
I know that some American dealers still have Quigley conversion in stock so if a Canadian is interested to have one, they can.

Anyway, will wait for factory awd.

to follow up with this. I did see a quigley van for sale on Kijiji from a ford dealer in Edmonton. Thought that was unusual, now it makes sense.

I thought I was the only one around with a 4x4 transit up north.

Last month I went back to Quadvan to upgrade my van from a Gen 1 to a Gen 2 4x4 conversion with vacuum hubs. What an improvement, turns better, driveline doesn’t move when in 2wd. Turns sharper and should have better fuel mileage. I must thank John at quadvan, they do good work!
