Hmmm, yes not much of a salesman to say the least. I'm from around the area where this owners resides and seems to have a chip on his shoulder maybe because he has to move to the left coast!
OP was just asking questions that any sane CJ owner would give living in this area because WE all know how some owner's like to deceive a potential buyer into a quick sale of a possible rusted out and hacked to death Jeep CJ.
Don't like the opinions here, move on or post truthful answer to questions on both the forum and eBay. It's every readers right to express their opinion whether you like it or not.
So just because you're not a site supporter you have no say in anything? If buying a membership to support the site opens up a wealth of knowledge, sign me up for a life time membership. Don't really get your point with that comment.
It seems to me that some tail feathers were ruffled with members giving their honest opinion of an item with very vague information and pictures. If you're looking to sell anything in life, be prepared with pictures, break down of everything (parts, problems, etc). Also be prepared for the critics out there because you will get picked apart.
Anyways, enough of my rambling. Gotta get some work done.
P.S. Personal opinion here--- fiberglass is whack!!!!!
I have an E-bay store and make the best effort to include detailed pictures and descriptions about every item that I sell on E-bay. You excluded quite a bit of information on the condition of the jeep and the listing lacked pictures of critical areas that a potential buyer should be able to see to make an informative purchase/bid. This is a jeep that is worth thousands of dollars, not some hot wheels car. I merely suggested that the potential buyer request more info and pics (both lacking in the listing) and if he was not able to get that information then he should pass on the jeep. Wouldn't that makes sense to you if you are looking to spend $5000 dollars on something sight unseen?
A picture is worth a thousand words. People trust pics more than what people say.
Pass. Fiberglass body loses points for me, especially at that price. Find one out west and haul it back, you'll be better off.
No steel, no deal. I grew up in NH so I've felt with my fair share of rusty CJ's and I still won't buy another glass Jeep. Look out west, generally much better condition and you can have it shipped for around a $1000. I can get you the number of the guy that shipped mine from UT. if you can't find a better deal.
And personally if I was going to sell something for 5k I would drive the 30 minutes to take pictures of it. It's not like its states away. I read nothing flippant or rude, just people opinions on the sale. As a forum member yourself I would think that asking questions like that on a CJ would be a given and responsible move..
OP, I would never spend $5000 on a ebay vehicle site unseen. Find something on craigslist where you can actually kick the tires before you buy it and something that the seller is willing to send you pictures of every corner you want to see. There is a lot of crap out there and a lot of sellers who intentionally try to deceive you with lack of pictures or pictures that dont tell the whole story. What is one mans "good condition" might you "poor condition."
EDIT : Not saying that this seller is like that, but if $5k is on the line I would assume that all sellers are and actually check things out yourself.
95 - we would've given you the same advice had you asked before you bought it last summer. It's not like it's anything personal, these forums always bring out the critical side of its members. Wouldn't you have welcomed the same advice before you purchased?
