You'll need to tell us more about the jeep. Kind of strange that no one is jumping on 3500 for a YJ. That would sell fast here in Oregon.

Yes there's a section of forums for buying, selling, and wanted items. People put jeeps and parts and things on all the time.

I am watching this thread. This thread will be removed if it turns into a for sale thread or links to it.

Can I just ask a question? I'm just cerious but why would it matter if it linked to it or he just used this as a advertisement for his sale? Iv seen other threads closed because of the same reasons. Im just wondering why?

I really haven't a clue why you aren't getting bites over there. Maybe no one has money. If your not in a hurry to sell I say just wait. Someone will pick it up.

WF does not allow links to CL, Ebay, Autotrader or any other classified site to promote the sale. WF does not allow threads that sole purpose is to drive traffic to another thread.

Well, I will give my opinion as to why your not getting any real interest (at least based on the FS thread here).

I would say the biggest reason is a total and complete lack of details about the vehicle. Other than the model year and price, we are left guessing what the vehicle is.

What engine? How many miles? What options? Which set of wheels are being sold with the Jeep (two different sets are shown in the pictures)? How much damage (I can see damage to the front passenger side fender and rubber fender flare)? Interior condition?
When I see a FS ad (for anything) and there are no details, I assume the owner is trying to hide something. Im not saying that is the case here, but it may be that others think the same and dont care to make the effort to ask a bunch of questions.

I have bought and sold alot of vehicles in my time (sold three vehicles in the last year) and all sold within the first week because I took the time to give details, take detailed pictures of damage or issues, researched the price carefully and then priced according to the market and not my emotional attachment to the vehicle. And all three vehicles sold for my asking price.

I've also found that people like well organized list.
Laid out well. I don't like reading paragraphs in for sale section.

Year
Make
Model
Engine (miles)
Trans
Options
Mods
Condition
The good
The bad
Reason for sale (keep it short)
No b.s. (that turns me away)
Different info on the rig (oil pressure, running habits, ect)
Don't try to be a salesmen. (That turns me away and upsets me)
Let the rig sell itself.

And not to offend you but your typing tends to get lazy. Which makes your post and ads hard to read.
