Don't get me wrong, I love ebay®, but there are some people out there
who are just out to make a buck. They prey on you because ebay® has such a good reputation, they have millions of
auctions going on at the same time and, they draw millions of customers. So, they know that they can post the silliest
crap for sale and get away with it.
Because the Ranger is the best selling small truck in the U.S. for the past 15 years, we Ranger owners are a HUGE target.
Here are my favorite scams posted on ebay®:
- The "Ranger Custom Grille" is a $2 piece of expanded aluminum, available at any home improvement store!
- The "Timing Chip" is not a chip. It is a 5¢ resistor! See the IAT Mod.
- The "Ram-Air" is a piece of tin, some dryer duct and zip ties!
- The "Oxygen Sensor Mod" is not a chip or other "device". It is another 5¢ resistor that fools your ECU in to thinking the engine is running lean! DANGEROUS because your ECU never knows engines true fuel mixture!
- The "Nitrous "Minibooster©"" is nothing more than whip cream chargers and a length of hose!
- ...and don't even look at the "Electric Supercharger"! Read this!
Before you bid, check out their feedback:
if it has any negatives, proceed with caution...
if it is private, RUN!
The only reason their feedback is private is to
conceal all their negative feedback!
Here is what ebay® says about feedback:
"You will probably want to make your Feedback Profile public because that generates trust and increases the likelihood
that other eBay members will do business with you. After all, you'd probably want to see another member's Feedback
Profile before you bought from them, right? A private Feedback Profile, on the other hand, can only be accessed by
"Note: You will find that your Feedback Profile is a valuable asset at eBay, helping you earn the trust and respect of
fellow eBay participants. By making your Feedback Profile private, you may be jeopardizing other eBay participants'
desire to conduct business with you. We strongly encourage you to consider this carefully when making the decision
to make your Feedback Profile private."
