Do not buy from Ranger882!

Ok I bought a used bodylift off of Ranger882 a while back. I start making sure everything is ready to be put on and I realize that the steering extension is missing. Performance accessories wants to charge $85 dollars for one from them. I have tried getting in touch with this guy and cannot. He is no where to be seen or heard from. This guy has put me in a bind and has hindered me from not putting on this lift that I payed for. In his thread when I bought it, he said that ALL parts were there.....that was not accurate. I heard that the guy that bought his spindles off of him was missing bolts for them and had to buy new ones as well. If this guy ever sells anything else on here, don't buy from him and expect to have all your parts. And if you do, you wont get back in touch with him.

Ok guys I just found this. I'm pretty sure that this is the same guy because he is selling the same things and the prices are the same as on here. If anyone knows this guy or anyone who responded in this thread, please let me know, this is my only way I can get in touch with him. In the thread some guy asked for his phone number, if you know who this guy is please let me know.

From reading that, it looks like he sold the spindles I bought from him TWICE. The other guy paid for them, and they're on my truck.............How does that work? Did he just get jipped out of ~$205? You can't trust this guy it don't look like.

I just talked to him on AIM tonight....he will not help me. He said that i have to buy the extension myself. In his post on TRS he said that he has all the parts but when I asked him tonight he said that he didnt have the extension. He is a liar and is jipping people. He says that he has like 3 bodylifts but I think that is crap. So in all "3 bodylifts" not one had the steering extension he could send me. He wont sell here again, I got Moderators on him now. I also realized that he tryed selling the bodylift back like 2 months or so too. Him saying he has 3 bodylift kits is a lie.

Considering this gentleman has all of 4 whopping posts, I've put a temporary ban on his R-F account until he can explain himself. I suspect that if he ignores us or tells us to screw off, Christian or Skot will have no problems banning him for life and then some. I don't have much hope that there is a reasonable explanation here, but I'm willing to give everyone a chance to explain themselves.

I sent him an e-mail directly so we'll see what happens.

Well, I can't really say this comes as a surprise... his listed e-mail address of "[email protected]" is non-existent. If anyone else has a way to contact this gentleman, please let one of us know. I doubt we'll get anywhere but it is worth a shot.

I thought you cant even complete the initial registration without a working email account? Must've been changed recently or something..?

Thanks to the mods for the help. Im also am kinda mad about how he is ripping people off. Since I joined this site, it has been nothing but good info and people for me and I guess I just was niave (sp.) to think that this guy couldnt be a jerk. And yes he has IMed me on 2 different screennames and when I got his paypal it said some other name. Said on paypal that it is "Nadia", his cardomain says he is "Rob", and on here he is "John". He does nothing but lie. He told me he was selling this stuff to lower his truck for better gas milage but said on TRS that he was buying a new car. Also told me that he had 3 bodylifts so that is why he is selling it again. So pretty much he has so far: 3 bodylifts, 2 spindle sets, and 2 sets of tires/wheels. What a joke. I will be sending his lift back to him and deciding on whether to buy a bodylift new or just use the money for something else.

This is also weird, he really does have more posts than that, if you check his posts there are more than just a small amount...not a whole lot, but more.....the counter isnt correct, not sure why.

The counter doesn't count in certain sections like Off-Topic for example.

I beleive he is talking about TexasBullsye on here....so a very very greatful thank you to him for helping me out. I just hope this jerk doesnt rip anyone else off. Thanks to everyone and keep your eyes peeled for this scammer.
