Selling...

I know the econ has something to do with it, but what a PITA selling the Jeep.

When the price was on the high side I had a decent amount of interest in it, some good, some idiotic low ballers. But I had interest and I had a sale going good till... well he was a cheat.

Anyway, now that the price is lower and below 'market' value I get nothing, I mean nothing. WTF? :lol:

It's getting annoying have another car all lined up but waiting to sell the Jeep.

I've basically given up on selling mine. All I got were lowball offers. I finally decided I'd just keep it.

I had my Jeep on the market from Nov 08 - Feb 09. Sold it Feb 14 '09. Took awhile. It was weird because when I posted it the week of Feb 14 I was like "**** it, lets see if I will get some bites." Got 4 calls 20 minutes after posting.

Just keep posting it, it will catch someone's eye.

I sold my Jeep without listing it, but my cousin bought it.

When I sold my 02 Tacoma it took almost 5 months, but I got what I was asking for it.

Sold my 97 TJ, was looking for a TJ Rubicon, but school put that on hold.

Mines been at my mechanics sitting with no plates getting fixed. He told me that's there are people coming in and asking about it every day. I haven't even put a for sale sign on it and I have offers.

I miss my YJ, this current TJ just isn't my thing.

If it dosen't sell this weekend, I am bouncing the price back up to where I prefer it to sell at. I just have something else lined up and he is getting 'antsy.' If I am not able to act quickly I will just say screw it and let it go as it is.

Check this out last fall i decided it was time for my fourwheeler to go since i was no longer using it. Put an add on ebay and next day this kid calls me and asks if i will trade for a fourwheeler double the value of mine. I didn't have time to waste for this so i told the kid no. He called me back again and really wanted it so i told him i would do it but he had to drive the two hours to my place and if everything was as he said we would trade. So he did and i sold the traded fourwheer on ebay for more than i payed for mine 3 years ago and many miles earlier. It was awesome i got money in the bank and never left my garage and with the extra room came the r6.

I made sure that the kid new that he was making a very bad deal but this kid was persistent. I almost felt bad about it.

Disregard everything i say

I have a dana 30 front axle and amc 20 rear if anyone is looking. Both are 3.54, drums, narrowtrack.

Ive tried selling my C6 for a while; about 8 grand under book and I got a dozen dealers asking me 5 grand under that. Go screw! Its still for sale. Kind of. If it sells, it sells. If not, I dont have any problems keeping it.
