I would hesitate to deal with this guy. I have been talking to him through PM's, texting and phone calls since Thursday about a vehicle he had for sale. He lives south of Jackson and I live in Fenton. Its about an hour and a half from his house to mine. Which is a decent drive if I was to drive all the way there then back. So through the discussions back an forth I asked him to meet me. So here is a run down of the time line on how this went.

Through PM's and texting on Thursday and Friday he sent me some more pics and I asked some basic questions about it. He quickly responded to all texts and PM's. I sent him a text on Saturday and he said he would be available all day on Sunday for me to look at it. I sent him a text about 4pm to ask him if noon would work on Sunday and if he could meet me half way. He responded about a half hour later with "were at the Michigan Renaissance festival in Holly..will text later". I don't know if he has ever looked at a map or not but Holly is right next to Fenton. He literally drove past my house to go there. I responded by telling him "no problem...are you driving it now?" He then told me he was driving it and if was near there its 2hours form his door all freeway. I the told him I am right next to holly and was wondering if he could stop by for me too look at it since he was up this way. He did not respond at all on Saturday.

Sunday morning he sent me a text informing me that the key way on the p/s pump stripped and he would take $1300 for it like that. I told him no problem I could fix it and asked if he still could meet me half way. He then sent me back a text to tell me he was going to take it to get it fixed this morning. I told him to not worry about fixing it because I could. He didn't answer back so I called him about 11am. During the phone conversation he told me that he should be done fixing it shortly and he had to pick his wife and kids up from church at noon. We agreed to meet half way and he would call me back after he picked them up.

Still no response from him at 12:30 so I called him with no answer and left a message. He never responded so through out the day I had called him and sent him a couple more text's and PM's. I still have not heard from him at all but just seen he posted that He traded the vehicle off.

So just to give everyone a fair waring be careful of this guy wasting a lot of your time.

WOW! Take a look at his I-trader and his past sale/trade posts. This guy is the AJ HAll of sale forums. I'm sure he will post in this thread defending his actions like he does in every other one. I would send a check to Ballistic Fab tomorrow for parts before I would ever deal with this douche again.

LOL...I second that. I have been looking around the net this morning after he was not responding and it seems that he has A LOT of shit for sale. I also noticed that he has it posted on several different sites as well.

Well look at it this way at least you did not buy the vehicle then find out he took short cuts left and right or find out it was full of stolen parts.

Sucks to have your time wasted but sucks more to be stuck with a POS with the guy no where to be found.

I bought a ZJ he "built". And by built I mean cobble fucked in every way possible. Be glad you didnt buy it from the source. I just wish I had taken pics of all the shit before I started fixing/replacing.

Its not that he was spending time with his family. He was trying to cobble the truck together to get the p/s to work why his family was at church. He actually ended up trading the vehcile off to someone else. Kinda glad I didn't end up getting this thing from him.

I do still need some lugs nuts. I wonder if he will actually sell me some? :teehee:

Bottom line is I will never deal with this douche.
