Went to our local Cap-it, but looks like they won't be able to order this one for me. Wondering if I actually can get this thing in Canada? Anybody?

Dude, you don't want KMA....they're absolute garbage.

Talk with Shrock/Hefty and see what they can do for you. Maybe a local fabber?
OK, new to this...Doesn't have to be KMA, but similar look would be awesome (so are there any other options with similar design to KMA?). I don't like how majority of the others look. It's like if an X is wearing glasses :)

your best bet is to go read through and do your research in the front bumper sticky thread ( http://www.thenewx.org/forum/showthread.php?t=34716 )

I know I ordered my Ironbull bumper, with optional bars on it. I had a frew problems, but I like the bumper itself. as for shipping to Canada, your probably off better to have it shipped to somewhere in the states and go pick it up if at all possible.

pics of my bumper are in my build thread

Not possible here unfortunately, far away from border, only PR in Canada, no Canadian passport :-(

check out this web site,

http://www.cruisinoffroad.com/Index.html#top

as stated abbove they are located in chillawack BC. I am not sure if he has ever made a front bumper for the Xterra but I was quoted alot more $$$ then what shrock with shipping to my front door would cost just to have it fabbed up .

your other bet is to have a local fab shop design a custom front bumper that you will like

Although wait times are long and there is the extra cost of shipping I'd go with Shrocks for the quality. That said I don't have experience with others which I assume are also quality pieces. I do have a Shrocks rear and an Ironbull front. The Ironbull fit with no issues, though others did have problems. I'm not a fan of the coating they applied, likely didn't let it cure enough before shipping and after a couple yrs I have rust bleeding through. Plenty stout and with a good mounting setup it just needs to be refinished now.

PS You can buy ARB bumpers in Canada. Nice set up and a proven platform.

thats a shrockworks without the headlight hoops, just the center hoop
Hm, but they do not offer such option when you go on their web page, just:
1. No Top tubing
2. Pre-Runner Hoop
3. Center Hoop & Headlights Guards
so how can I get exactly one like on the picture?

Get shrockworks to ship to a business in town to save on the brokeridge fees. You can get it shipped to your door but your probably looking at least $350 in shipping/border charges.

Well, I'll see what could be done about this. Me not driving to US is leaving me with so limited options. I would be lucky to get just any bumper in here for a reasonable and not crazy price I guess :-( Good bye selection :)
