Default Craig's list 89 YJ part out, super sketchy and seems stolen!

Ok I just got back from looking a 89 Jeep YJ that is being parted out on CL. I was interested in the frame b/c they said it was 100% rust free. If you have time read the Craig's list http://detroit.craigslist.org/mcb/pts/3600136098.html

I was told that the frame had zero rust or rot, well when I got there it was a rotten repaired mess. The posting is listed for Clinton township but the jeep is actually being parted in a shack behind a shack of a house in waterford. When I got there I was greeted by a Mildeastern guy, his dad and a white guy who I believe owned the house. They all seemed super shaddy and nervous, when I asked them why it was being parted they looked at each other and just kinda mumbled, "just because we are ok". I also asked if they had a tittle for it and the older middle eastern guy hurried over from 20 feet away and said real shacky, "yeah I have a title" and walked away. They also said the axles weren't stock and were super "HD", come to find out they are just stock D30/35. I really got the feeling that this thing was stolen and it was being stripped. They also are working extremly fast to get it gone.

I don't want to wrongly accuse someone but that's just the feeling I got from the whole deal so if you are planing on going over there to buy something be careful. Even if its not stolen and its all legit, they are the biggest bull shitters in the world about the condition of the parts so be careful.

Glad i found this...I've been texting back and forth with this guy all day about the hardtop and doors. Refused to send pics and then found out doors are not the ones pictured in the add. Sounds like a complete bait and switch

Jeep isn't in pieces, the wheels are off, the hood is off and bits on jack stands but it's not in pieces.

Also, when I asked if he had a title and he said yes, I also asked if I could see it and they refused.

I was bored so I decided to text him about axles....the guy had no idea what axles they were and just said they were "stock set up to run a v8", I told him that they weren't what I was looking for, I was looking for HD axles as the ad said. He just said "yea, I have to change to ad, they're not what I thought they were"
