Yeah I was looking for a new rig in october... went from like 2 ads that looked too good to be true to by the end of october the first 2 pages were scams if you put your bottom price down to 2k or less. I guess they figured out people like jeeps?

Without even looking at the ad, let me take a guess...

No phone, only an e-mail.
When they e-mail you back, there will be some excuse about the vehicle being located in a different part of the country right now.
The vehicle is ready to ship, just send the money.
They are selling it cheap due to some bad memory, someone died, someone is deployed, etc.
