No, just in general, not lowballers, just period with people in this sport.

Not likely, since a business generally buys more from a manufacturer than an individual, they have a litlle more clout (I.E. 'If my customers keep complaining, I will be dropping your product line").

Buying from an individual means I better be getting a deep discount for taking the chance.
The fact someone is selling a 'like new' part often means thery f'ed up and got the wrong thing and it's too big a hassle to return, so are looking for a bailout. (I realize this may not be YOUR case, but it often works out like this for most sellers)
My doubler is not like new, it's BRAND new, and still comes with whatever support you need from Duffy personally no matter what, already spoke with him about it, and I was selling it for $500 per-say, he ask what I was thinking and I told him honestly like to get close to the $500 as it was still Brand new, I understand point of buying from business vs private sales, however not going to sell this item that's brand new for $200 under the machine shop just cause I own it. Value of it is still there, and also include shipping and the the fact you will get in a week, and I would have prolly let it go for $400 which is hell of a deal, but have to understand my reluctance in it, not that I had to sell it but I would of, and really I would have prolly tossed in the wide chain kit as well, cause I'm a nice guy, but fukc it.

And SlayerXJ as well, my point is that I take this 4x4 sport pretty serious as a hobby, it keeps me out of trouble, well wife don't count, but yeah, I love the sport of it, the competition, the clean up and support in the trail re-openings, the community social aspect of it. I'm not in this sport just to rip up the trail on the weekend and what ever, I do this as I have made some great friends, have great times with my family, I learn something new everyday and I get a sense of satisfaction from stuff that goes into supporting the sport and building a rig or helping someone build theirs, know what I mean?

And so my first point in regards to the doubler is like anything else, if your going to buy something keep it local if you can, it helps the economy, you know by USA not foreign , same thing I do in the Wheeling community, if I going to buy it anyways, I rather buy it from a fellow wheeler, I get what I need and he get what he needs, I'd still pay close to full price for a BRAND new product, why not? New to me still so worth it, but if it saves me time and money from shipping and I can get it sooner then later, then why not? Same with used shit, yeah there is where deals are to be had no doubt, and yet again you help a local wheeler out man it all goes around.

Beaner you still want that reach around come get it you sexy devil you!
