I took those pics after I towed my 40' yacht to Miami. You people obviously haven't been down to the marina lately. The jeep can be seen parked outside next to the servant's quarters.
No tire kickers.

I'll pay 2800 to move out of Chicago, and or buy some spiffy visors. Why buy a hat when you can spend a ton on visors?!

31mpg? Hybrid maybe? No, can't be a hybrid with dual exhaust. The person that took the pictures must be 6" tall.

MPG = meters per gallon.

mpg = miles per gallon.

People are easily confused by this.

I can't tell you how many of these "too good to be true" Jeeps I ran across on my search for a TJ. And they're all around the same price. And they all have a similar parts list. The only time I've ever seen a TJ for $2800 is if it was completely trashed.

LOL! This is all ricer gear! Tein springs?... Those are for LOWERING a vehicle! HPF body kit?... That's a front spoiler that you mount under the bumper!

I came across a LOT of these when I was shopping for a Jeep. I'd say at least 3/4 of the car ads on craigslist are scams. You clicked the "report fraud" button, I hope?
