Classified Forums - Read this first!

Here are a few simple guidelines for this forum. Failure to follow any of these rules will be grounds for your thread to be closed.


Post your information
Post as much info as you can. Say where you are located, where the part is located, the best way to get in contact with you, if you are willing to ship, etc.


Post the item's information
Post as much info as you can. A price must be posted, as well as pictures of the item(s). Post as many pictures as you can, even if it is a common item. A picture tells a thousand words, but it can also conceal another thousand. Links to hosted galleries of images are acceptable, links to eBay and/or Craigslist are not. Once the item sells, please do not edit your ad to remove the price. Many people search through old ads to get an idea what their item may be worth.


If listing a car, post:
-The year and model
-An accurate mileage. If the odometer is broken, post what it reads currently and how many miles you believe it has
-Any aftermarket modifications
-Any known issues or damaged areas
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


If listing wheels and/or tires, post:
-The brand and model
-As many specs as you can, including but not limited to tire size, tread remaining, wheel diameter, width, offset, bolt pattern and centerbore, if multi-piece the lip, barrel and center size. If they have been redrilled post the original bolt pattern and where it was done.
-Any imperfections, including but not limited to curb rash, bends, cracks, repaired areas, scratches. For tires, note any gashes, bubbles, cupping or curb rash
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every wheel


If listing parts, post:
-What brand and what models it can be used on
-An accurate description
-How long it/they have been used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For miscellaneous items, post:
-A detailed description of the item
-How long it/they were used for
-Any imperfections
-A price
-As many pictures as possible of every area


For WTB threads
-Be as detailed as possible.
-List exactly what you want, what variations you will accept, colors or materials, etc.
-Post what you won't accept. This includes imperfections, colors, models, etc.
-Post a price range of what you are willing to pay (typically based on condition).
-Post where you are located and if you would prefer local pickup.


In case the point was not made, everything being sold on this forum must include a price and as many pictures as possible.
-This is not eBay or Craigslist (or any other buy/sell/trade site). Do not post links to those for your ad. The same goes for linking to ads on other forums... either post your information here or have your thread closed.
-Feeler threads are not allowed. If you're not sure about selling it, don't post it.
-Cross-posting within the R3VLimited forum is not allowed. Choose a single subforum for your ad.
-If listing your item for trade, post what you are looking for, what you feel your item is worth, if you would like cash back or if you have cash to put on top.
-Thread crapping is not allowed. If you're not interested in purchasing the item for sale or have nothing positive to add, stay out of the thread or be prepared for a time out. If you complain about the time out, it will be extended.
-Threads can be bumped a maximum of once per day (24h). You are allowed to respond to others more than once a day.
-If listing multiple items, post them in one thread. Exceptions are cars and wheels.

    This is what I was initially hoping for. I was set on doing exactly that and refunding him once I got it but what had intimidated me was the rush to escalate the PayPal dispute the same day it was opened without allowing me any time to sort the issue out at all. Most sellers & buyers know PayPal sides with the buyer most of the time. Ben sounds like he is being genuinely honest about not receiving it, and let me know his elderly mother may have mistakenly rejected it or a neighbor may have received it by FedEx's mistake. I hope this gets resolved quickly and as fairly as possible.

      Not attacking Scott at all, just updating this thread: no updates and no diff has been delivered.

        They told me they have found it, and the tracer is having it rerouted to you. For some reason, they stated you had called and had them re-route it to me (?). Not sure if that's accurate but I will call FedEx and notify you regarding the most current whereabouts and status of it as soon as I get word.

          I have not called them once. I've had three online chats which I'm happy to forward those in an email. Just an FYI, I'm relying 100% on your to make this right, which I'm sure you will, Scott!

            Just an update: Scott states fedex has claimed it's lost and is waiting for them to send him something via mail to confirm his claim. I sent $567 to Scott on 7/17 and have nothing to show for it; not a diff or a refund. I'm sure Scott is going to make this right, I just want to keep the thread current.

              Sounds to me like this is FedEx's screw-up. I think both parties here felt like they were being scammed as soon as something went wrong, and were both trying to protect/defend themselves (rightfully so). I would recommend both buyer and seller continue to act in good-faith to get this resolved with FedEx, who it seems was the last party to have the package.

                Yes, currently waiting for them to finish the claim. They've told me they'll notify me via email once claim is complete and a check to my home as well. If I refund you before receiving the differential or claim conclusion, I will be leaving myself vulnerable for you to ghost me and leave me without my diff and cash as well. I've been nothing but responsive to you and you have my phone number as well. Please let FedEx complete their investigation, it is in their hands at the moment.

                  Yea, I don't understand how you can lose a 80lb package. According to FedEx, the day after delivery, the package was returned to a local FedEx and told to be re-sent to the sender. In conclusion, video footage will determine the truth and once they conclude it is indeed the wrong recipient, FedEx will have no choice but to pay for their mishap.

                    UPS lost a diff that I had shipped it in a tough box container... All that managed to get delivered was the friggin case cover (i included it separately because i didn't want the ear to break off in transit). Shit happens but thats what shipping insurance is for!

                      You're exactly right. I try my best not to claim insurance when not necessary since it affects their decisions in the future. Don't want to be labeled as a liability to FedEx as I ship a majority of my parts through them. I've shipped over 50 differentials and this is the first time something like this has happened. I'm sure it'll be resolved soon enough.

                            Update for sake of transparency: fedex told me today the claim was opened on 8/30 and that it typically takes 5-7 days to resolve. They will only share any more details with the shipper. Fedex should be done with this all by Tomorrow.
