Hey, I will be moving to Lethbridge from Kelowna at the end of December with my girlfriend for her to continue her studies at the U of L. I recently picked up a black 96 Grand Limited and I love it. I will definitely be looking for some locals to wheel with and show me around. Just got back from Lethbridge today (what a nightmare on the roads!!!!) we snagged a really nice 3rd floor appt. on the westside. Anyways looking forward to meeting some of you..... and mabey not so much looking forward to the wind.

The highways were a death sentence. Ive never seen so many cars/trucks/18 wheelers in the ditch. So how is the 4x4 scene around Lethbridge? How close are the nearest trails? Sounds like you have a very nice rig there, I know I didnt see you cuz I would have probably been drooling over your truck. My plans are IRO 4.5 premium, M/T classic 2's, and 31/32/33 KM2's or Cooper STT.
You wouldnt happen to know anyone looking to hire a licenced auto tech would you? That would just be too convienient wouldnt it.
Do you know of anyone else on the forums from Lethbridge?

Alot of the trails are in the forestry land to the west...and alot of the trails have been close from idiots abusing them I am pretty new to the 4x4 scene, so am still learning too!!

Hey bud! Haven't seen your jeep around yet. Mines a green n' black '92. Says, "Mr and Mrs. Oldschool" in the back window. Seen a few lifted xj's around town but not many Grands. (like none)
