geez, where to start- I buy most my stuff off there

my '83 CJ7- asking $4500, got it for $2500

a little clean-up, and a bought set of rims (5) for $80 CL (sold chrome ones on CL for $60) so elbow grease and a 20 spot and here I was

I bought the spare tire (well, a set of four actually) with steel wheels for $25 off CL. I kept the best tire, gave one to a buddy, and sold the rims for $25.

added a console for $15- delivered (thanks CL)

didn't buy my commando off CL, but I bought the HT for it for a mere $50 (a week before I bought the Jeep)

another set of CL rims (only 4 this time) for $60, sold the stock wheels for $100

and got to here

(see a pattern?)

I bought my TJ half doors with mirrors and matching interior panels (and two new keys) for $270 (shipped to my door) of CL, and my draw-tite tow bar (solid, not the cheesy foldable type) for $35

I just picked up a complete, pre '92 YJ bar (with spreaders and full pads) for $35 on CL

-thought I'd use it on the Commando, but went a different route, so I guess I'll resell it.

I love this thread. Great stories. As BESRK said, the thing to do is have cash and be ready to run at a minutes notice. Just last month I bought a $135.66 Home Depot card for $50. I had the guy meet me at Home Depot and we went to customer service to confirm its validity and value. Thats all he was asking. I think he was a crack head who returned something and was only able to get a store credit and preferred to have some cash.
