No other court, no appeal, just done. I can still take this to another court since there was no judgment for the defentant or the plaintiff. The judge said this was not the court for this case. He told the pos that he misrepresented the items and did so intentionally. On the way out of court he told me that civil court is the proper place because in small claims you can't sue for misrepresentation and damages, where in civil court you can.

And who cares if it went to court and even if I did loose? Fact still remains that this pos and his father lied about it and lied to the judge in court about it. Bad sellers are bad sellers and should be called out. It;s what itrader is for, it's what ebay feedback is for. This is another outlet to let people know.
You took someone to court over a few hundred bucks on axle shafts? Wow, you either don't value your time, or you were way butt hurt.

I mean if you're that concerned about it take a closer look at what you're buying.

I agree in a way, but i also wouldn't mind losing a few bucks to make a POS that screwed me over to lose more than a few bucks.

I don't know the actual price difference, but travel time, gas, the cost to file, missed work/wasted vacation time or even if i am unemplyed wasted time away from my kids, the hassle, etc.

Not worth it.

You bought something, there's no reason you couldn't confirm what you bought before you left. Game over. Shut up quit whining.

What happened to being able to take a person's word, especially if the person's parent is standing there backing up the claims,

I would not take tools to take apart an axle, or anything else close to that, just to verify there were custom/after market parts. I have been taken by people this way. No I didn't take them to court, but you know what, I wanted to, and would have if I could have. The more people get away with mis-representation, the more they do it.

When i got my xj i was in a cast, multiple casts actually so i couldn't test it out, by the time i got out of
casts i found quite a few things that were less than what the ad portrayed, that was November, still finding shit disconnected/broke but nothing real major, upgrading anyway so no big deal

I think you should be able to take someone's word.

But, you used to sell stuff to someone local who drove by it and wanted it. Now you have people on the internet coming to buy your shit that you'll never see again, so you embellish a little bit.

If ever there was a time that a buyer should beware its now.

I guess I just figure every asshole selling something has hidden something, jerry rigged something, made something look better than it is. I guess I just either spend the time to double check, or expect I was lied to and offer what I am willing to pay for what I think it really is vs what the seller claims it to be.

That's not necessary. My associate producer is already working with Muddy Paws. We are going to get to the bottom of this.

Wow !!! I know the Bradens and this is totally out of character !! Dead wrong about him.
Didnt you just loose a court case with them at the 86th district courthouse???

Also would like to add that posting a picture of his fathers home is a lawsuit in itself !! From what I understand you are repeatedly harrasing him via text as well as this websght !! Thats just borderline nuts dude .

I happen to know for a fact that you found the truck on craigs list and you haggeled with Micah for weeks on money and trading power tools or equipment,
and that the rear end was blown out of the truck at that time .

Micah took that REAR END out of a 1985Toyota and placed it in the 4 runners axle housing. Stock Gears and axles out of a stock truck . You agreed to this and took the truck with 529 geers in the front end and stock Toyota pick up gears in the rear . And now your trying to sue him for axle shafts when all you did was find his number on craigs list.

Wow, you must be a great friend. I don't know this level of detail on most of my friend's builds and their finances.

Somebody needs to take this guy to court for attempting to destroy the English language. He should be sentenced to life, a lifetime of English lessons, GED preparation courses and fifth grade spelling tests.

Birfield isn't a brand of shaft, it's a type of joint. The picture is of a stock shaft.
