Welcome Montanagirl...

Nice Pickup! I noticed the 8B Idaho plates in your pics... Came from Idaho Falls area? Not too far from me. How was your ebay buying experience? I've sold a car, and bought a little RV on Ebay. The sell wasn't so bad, but I'm not sure I'd buy another rig on ebay...

Pete

Hi Pete! This was my second auto purchase on Ebay. Both went smooth as glass. . .I had been watching for some time, and it seemed most rigs were back east or down in California. Not only was this truck in Idaho Falls, the guy who was selling it was golfing in Kalispell the following weekend! He offered to load it up and deliver it to my door. I think I ended up just paying his gas to get it here. Must have been meant to be! He had originally purchased it as a project for him and his son. They were going to make a rock crawler out of it and take it to Moab. They decided it was too nice of a rig for that, so they tweaked it a bit and turned around and sold it. No reserve on ebay, and I think I got a great deal. In hindsight, I don't know that I'd do ebay again, tho. . .it does take a bit of a leap of faith . . .

Welcome from Flintville Tennessee. Very Nice truck! I just 'sold' my wagon on ebay to a scammer from England. I still have my wagon and a forged check for $3650 more than the selling price! He just wanted me to send the difference to his shipper back in England. 52wagon
