Curious where you got this information Sparro. I see your located in Ontario (like me) so I assume the price you are quoting is based on a Canadian dealership retail price.
I spoke to Peter at justforjeeps.com and the price they will have is $584 USD (representing MSRP of $649 less a 10% discount). I would expect brokerage fees to be another $55 USD from USA to Canada as they were on my order a couple days ago for roughly the same amount.
Shipping is still unknown as it will depend on package size but I can't envision it being $182 (the difference between your $821 and the US price excluding UPS cost).
Seems like there is a demand for this item. I asked peter if there was a better price if we could do a group purchase and he thinks instead of the 10% mentioned above he could do 15-20% discount on 5 or more orders... Wondering if there is any interest enough to open a topic over in the group buy section...
Oh and Sparro, I'd like to get in touch given we may be close enough to save on shipping by combining orders... I'm too new to pm -need 5 posts but perhaps you can pm me an email address or contact info to discuss...
