Off-topic, but I love seeing ads for drum sets where the person refers to skins instead of heads. It usually means the person knows little about drums (good deal) or they have really old drums in original condition ( good deal.)

Flyfisher76 It is also all about the search engine. You search for generic convertible and convertible is in the listing for the jeep it pops up. You don't have it listed as a convertible no view of your listing.

This. I always felt like they listed convertibles so if someone were looking for one, they might run across the Jeep and think about buying one, even though they weren't thinking of a Jeep when they wanted a convertible.

Classifieds Ad Rant

When I was looking to purchase a corvette, I noticed that a lot of the classified ads would list the 'vettes as a coupe.

By definition, a coupe is any 2-door car. Therefore, aren't ALL corvettes a coupe.


Which brings me to my point ...

I see that a lot of the ads for TJs say "convertible".
Since ALL TJs can have a hard top, soft top, bikini top, etc., aren't ALL TJs considered a convertible?

Or maybe it's just the seller trying to list everything possible about his/her vehicle, to better sell it. (If only the seller knew that the Jeep pretty much sells itself.)
