Come buy my truck! It's for sale!

.... but not by me... lol.

I was tipped off this afternoon that some joker is trying to sell my truck. It's kinda funny, kinda sad, and kinda ridiculous.

It is funny because of how far off he is about everything. You would think if he found the photos he could find what I had done to it too.

He says 67k miles, try 140k miles.
He says King bumps, try Fox bumps.
He says 35's, try 33's.
He says Baja Wheels, try ProComp.
He says 2 15" subs, try 1 10".
He says DVD Headunit, try old Sony.
And 3500? Shoot, blue book on the truck stock is double that.

So I already emailed the guy asking for more information and pictures. We'll see if he bites.

Here is the Ad, have fun. Just be sure and post if you do anything.

No I'm pretty sure it is a scam. If the truck were what he says it is it would sell for 10-15grand easy. Not 3500.

That and all the info that he has that is correct is exactly what I have in my signature, everything else was a guess.

IF he were to be using the pics as reference, its odd that its also a 1999 4.0.

I flipped a ***** when I saw this on RDC, Jason. First thing I did was think, "Why the hell would he do that?" then sent the link to Alon with a big wtf behind it. Glad to hear "you" are not getting rid of her. What a stupid thing to do, I wonder what he thinks he can get out of this.

I was thinking the same thing... I still can't figure out quite how that scam works. Only thing I can think is maybe he will ask for a deposit from people then vanish with a few bucks.
