    I ended up with 6 lights that were on it
    Yes he could have more than likely made more, but since he lives in an apartment complex, no garage, works a lot no place or time for tear down / part out. He was able to remove a very few things before it bye bye

    But I feel bad, but also glad I got the Vision X LED Light Cannons and the 2 sets of Rigid Dually pods for mine :gr_grin:

    Good Lord, do mean to tell me those axles, and bumpers went into some jerk off pocket who worked for the insurance agency????

    I dont get it. After all that money, why wouldnt he have bought it back from the insurance agency?

    Without any disclosure about why not doing a partout vs insurance buyout would lead some to believe he got a good deal. Some can insure for aftermarket upgrades too

    He had everything he had done documented/ prices etc and all was insured VERY well. Something that many do not think of

    Well as long as he was covered. Thanks guys. I dont know the man, but I do know he was very helpful (much like Tom always is) on these sites and he seemed to know what he was doing! His truck certainly was proof of that. I wonder what he'll get into now?

    Yeah. I saw his Jeep before I owned a Jeep actually. Owning a liberty wasn’t even thought of at the time

    So I believe I found someone using this jeep as scam.
    It was listed in the link here for $2,000 and still “has not sold”. I was contacted by the new “owner” who claims this was never wrecked or damaged and has a 2.5L gasoline engine.

    I can post snap shots of the conversation

    I just thought it was good for everyone to know the AutoTrader link is / was the scammers point of entry.
    I inquired when the post was made out of curiosity and this person is using the photos and information from this site to fraud or attempt to fraud a bunch of people.

    I’m working on a way to upload the conversation via email

    Potential scammer email :
    [email protected]

    [​IMG]
    Also was all the pictures from this site I only screenshot one page
    [​IMG]
    So then I proceed to troll a little and mention I have access to a trucking company and can schedule a pickup at her convenience. Will bring cash for title

    [​IMG] So I mentioned I have an eBay account and requested to view the listing. No response.
    Yea it’s 99% a scam but I wanted you guys to know

    The "True seller" a Colorado dealer still has it for sale now at lower price.
    If we go back in this thread to post # 8 there is still a working link about his KJ for sale. I do not see any mention of salvage title or a rebuilt status.

    It would be interesting for the original owner to email the lady back inquiring about all her memories with the jeep lol. I guess he never knew another woman and her late husband had a lot of history with his Jeep.


    In all honesty tho - this is the second person trying to sell this jeep and using it to scam people. Last one wanted 7500$

    I would like to see someone one this forum end up with it. It would also be interesting to know the story of how it got to where it's at now.
