Craigslist Find of the day thread

Moderators Edit: We'll see if this works on a temporary trial basis. I can understand wanting to help each other out and alerting people to good deals, but most items on CL will be strictly regional, and it may be too tempting for people to list their own CL ad which is against FTE Guidelines.

If you are tempted to post your own CL ad, please don't.
If you post a CL ad (and it isn't yours) and you later see it's missing, it was a discretionary call. Don't question why in an open thread because that too is against FTE Guidelines. You can PM one of the Excursion Mods and ask though.

This thread is rife with many pitfalls and problems that can get users in a lot of trouble, and I'm not convinced it will work smoothly, so let's all try to make it work together.

If you need to re-familiarize yourself with FTE Guidelines, they can be found here: Site Guidelines - Ford-Trucks.com

Also, a link is always listed at the top of every FTE page, in the larger black colored toolbar.

Thanks for your cooperation.

2nd Mods Note

Much like the "FREE PARTS" thread, this thread will only show a limited number of posts. Probably one month or so since CL ads go away fast.

On the first of every month (or thereabouts) the oldest posts will be deleted to keep the size of the thread manageable.

I was about to post a link to CL and have a whole new thread about it (well I guess I still am) but figured all those CL find threads could be consolidated into one to make this easy.

Anyways - on to what I found. This guy has this listed for a F-250 but since the holes for the hooks are Horizontal I think this would bolt right up to an Excursion and it looks damn near brand new:

OEM Ford F250 / F350 / Excursion Trailer Hitch Receiver

Not bad, though I’d take it to the next level with sticky gorilla tape on that steering wheel.

"Good for parts or beater truck".

Uh, looks like it's had the second one covered for a while already.

Trying to determine if this is a scam posting or not. It's been listed for almost 2 weeks. Really clean truck.

$6000 for a 50k mi really clean diesel and has been listed 2 weeks. Definitely a scam.

I'd call BS just because of the "too good to be true" factor - an '03 7.3 with 51k miles for half the price of a 200k mile example. My guess is that was a set of pics taken in 2005 or so. The dealer sticker looks like Auffenberg Ford, in Illinois. Front tag doesn't look like a NY tag to me unless that's a different one from what I usually see. I can see a windshield sticker of some sort, but I don't know what NY has for inspection/tax stickers. As for the rest of the pics, I'm not sure I recall many setting like that in Brooklyn - those must have been taken on vacation upstate, right?

If you're that curious, can't hurt to contact the seller, right?

Says "5" straight piped" from what I can see of the tip, it doesn't look 5" to me. That truck would be at least 3 times that asking price

first three pics you can see the plate. white plates are TX, not NY. Probably a scam, as the scammers like to lift pics from TX ads.

NY has a white plate with I believe blue lettering along with the license plate with yellow background.

they have a White with blue bottom band, which you can see isn't there on pic #3. The Blue/gold only has the band on top.
