The scams are running rampant!!

World's cheapest defender!!

For 9,800 dollars I'd walk to PA on my hands for this beauty! Don't people realize that devout defender enthusiasts notice things like, this car was for sale about a month ago for something like $40,000. Part of my daily routine after checking the source boards is a perusal of eBay and various other sites for defenders and defender related paraphernalia. Recognizing certain vehicles becomes easy, especially when they are similar to my own! Silly scam artists.

P.S.- I really wish my 95 had an existing warranty like this one !!!!

$9800 US... That should be the key... Anyone that lives here or is from here would just post $9800.00, why would they make sure that you paid them in US currency.

From what I've been hearing in the news- Nobody wants the US Dollar! It was reported that Giselle Bunchen wants to be paid in Euros for her work.

Being in PA, I just figured it was Ron offloading another rover. He's into Jeeps now!

I always ask the scammer if I can see it. The one in Gladwyne was tempting but a scam. I had one where it looked completely like a scam (zero feedback, bad pics etc.) but it was legit. Guy pulled the auction early to sell locally or I would have had a 97 with 65k on it for about 18k.


rovers outnumber jeep 4 to one.

autocheck shows it registered in Charlotte, NC earlier this year. Looks like it spend most of it's life in GA before that...I'd say someone snagged the VIN and put this up. Saw a sweet FJ40 on ebay where someone had done the same thing.
