I really hate the For Sale ads
 
Not on here but locally..I am always searching for jeep parts, and occasionally goto the vehicle section to see what dealers are asking and private parties are wanting. When I come across an out and out lie I want to email and say "REALLY!!", but its not my place. But is still chaps my :bottom: because someone is going to buy this and then end up here with questions and find out they got taken.

I know you have to be a saleman and sell the good stuff, and be a bit high in price to be able to negotiate a bit. But still!

I came across a 2000 Sahara that the person is just dishonest about what it really is. This one particular they say it has a 6" lift, and judging by the pics (I really analyze them) it is MAYBE a 2" BB, or maybe some BL, its still on stock rims and passenger tires with about stock clearance in the wheel wells, stock control arms. They tout how they will throw in 4 brand new 33x12.5 tires they paid 1600 for (hard to believe) and don't mention that with back spacing they wont fit on those stock rims. talk about how the hard doors could be sold for 1200.00 alone (I see them all day long in the 800.00 range) and never mention the important stuff like mileage.

maybe i am in a bad mood or I am just over analyzing. Ask what ever you want for your stuff, but don't lie to people.

lol...everything for sale there is mint and every buyer thinks you will take 1/3 of what is is worth, used!

I have a running fourwheeler I am selling and listed it, every issue it has, good or bad or ugly, I searched for a month back and their is not one currently running fourwheeler in the same approximate year, cc or running condition as mine. At 900.00 I am 400.00 less than the closest comparable, and cheaper than some (same model and body style) that need "TLC" or " a bit of work to get running" and I still get emails for "I've got 300 cash right now". I understand the art of negotiating but come on...lol

or the best are "runs great, just needs a head gasket and reverse doesn't work" Ummmm, last time I checked that means it has major engine and transmission problems..



(sidenote, I love it when they say all it needs a 20 dollar part and it will run, ok then, put it on there and show me!)
