Collapse Marketplace Rules

The MiFBody Marketplace is a great place to get a good or great deal on many items.

We provide these classified forums free of charge and offer no-fee sales to our members as a benefit of MiFBody. We have some common-sense rules outlined below that we expect everyone to follow.

New MiFBody members may not be able to create for sale posts in the marketplace forums until you have met a certain criteria with minimum posts and time as a member on MiFBody.

Anyone who does not comply with these rules will be warned and possibly banned from the classifieds or from MiFBody. For your safety and the safety of others, please comply with the Marketplace rules and read the buyers advice at the end of this post. If you see anything suspicious or have a questionable sale sent to you via PM, please push the report a post button or contact the MiFBody Staff.

Any member who receives negative feedback from a transaction may have their classified forum access removed without notice depending on severity of the dispute.

MiFBody assumes no ownership or risk in your purchases in the Marketplace - the transaction is between you and the seller. Both buyers and sellers should post feedback after your transaction is completed using the iTrader Feedback mechanism.

Rules for Sellers:
  1. You must post both a detailed description and an asking price.
  2. No spamming multiple classifieds forums with your for sale items. This means pick one and only one classified forum to post your for sale item in.
  3. No bulk or volume sales are allowed in these forums. If you acquire items in quantity (bulk sales mean >1 item) with the intent of offering them for resale here, you are considered a dealer under this rule. Please contact us for paid advertising options.
    • Some specific items have caused recurring volume sales issues. As such, and at the discretion of the staff:
      • No more than one full car partout per member (see additional partout rules below) in a 6 month rolling period.
      • No more than one car listing per member in a 6 month rolling period without MiFBody Staff approval

  4. Non approved vendors, dealers or service providers of any kind may NOT post either individual or group buy items for sale here without the Administrator's approval. MiFBody approved vendor sponsors should post in their respective Vendor Marketplace forum.
  5. No multi-level marketing schemes. Posting links that guide our members to any type of scheme that benefits a single member are not allowed. Peddle your free iPod somewhere else.
  6. "Bumping” rules: Do not "bump" or "TTT" your post more than once per day.
  7. Prohibited Sale Items on MiFBody are any of the following items:
    • A) No bootlegged software sales. Anyone who knowingly buys or sells bootlegged (Warez) software or music through this forum will be permanently banned. This includes copies of navigation DVDs. Also, you may not sell Academic or NFR (not for resale / not for retail or OEM distribution) software.

    • B) No alcohol, tobacco, firearm, or any weapons sales.

    • C) No Pornographic (XXX) item sales.

    • D) No gift card sales.

  8. No 'testing the waters' or 'possibly for sale' posts. Either you're selling the item or you're not. If you're not sure, don't post it here until you are ready. Please do your research on your asking price before posting the item for sale.
  9. No price gouging! While we don't expect items to be given away for free on our forum, the reason we have these classifieds is to help each other out. If you are lucky enough to have a 'new hot item' (example: Xbox 360 or PS/3 when first released) enjoy it. If you want to make a big profit off your fellow member, take it to eBay or to craigslist and more power to you. We aren't going to enable your lust for profit by letting you post extremely overpriced items here on MiFBody. This rule is enacted at classified MiFBody Staff and administrator's discretion.

Rules for Shoppers and Marketplace Browsers:
  1. No thread crapping. If you aren't interested in the item listed and asking a question about it in pursuit of a purchase decision, then don't post. It is poor etiquette (and not allowed) to post a "I have one to sell too!" message for a similar item you're selling in another member's thread or to link some random unknown person's listing selling the same thing on eBay slightly cheaper.
  2. No "Dibs"; calling dibs means absolutely nothing. Who gets the item is the seller's discretion. They can reject low offers or even at-asking-price offers based on a number of parameters including first person to send funds, prior experience with buyer, local buyers, etc.
  3. If you're going to make an obvious lowball offer, use private messaging (PM).
  4. No excessive bumping of other member's sales items.

Car Part Outs:

  • ONLY authorized vendors can part out multiple cars here.
  • Part outs should be posted in the appropriate "Parts For Sale" forum, not vehicles classifieds.
  • Multiple vehicle part-outs are not allowed.... it's a one time event meant for a vehicle that is disabled due to accident or one you've bought to use major pieces on your own car and are selling the rest. Buying a car specifically to part it out here is reserved for the paying vendors.
  • Planning on buying a parts car and taking future orders to sell parts of it? Absolutely not allowed. If you can't support the purchase of the parts car for without the forum support, don't buy it or plan on pre-selling parts here.

Vehicles For Sale:

  1. Vehicles may be offered for sale by all members, but no dealer posts are allowed unless they have completed the Sponsor process.
  2. Only active MiFBody members with >5 posts may post non-vehicles.
  3. Please post the location of the vehicle being sold in the description.

Advice for Buyers: Caveat Emptor

Please be cautious and use your common sense when buying something expensive from someone you don't know here on MiFBody. If something' seems too good to be true, question extensively before you buy.

Here are some easy-to-do tips that can at least help mitigate some of the risk. If you are personally uncomfortable asking for these items, we suggest you 'blame it on the rules' below to make it a safer transaction for all concerned:

  1. Ask for detailed pictures and condition description to be posted if not provided. Get full size, well lit images of the items and close ups of any blemishes to review before buying.
  2. Search on posts by sellers to see what they've bought/sold in the past. Were there any issues other people posted about? IE: PM someone who bought something big from them in the past to see if it turned out OK.
  3. Do some research on the seller. IE: Have they been a member on MiFBody long? Do they just sell stuff or do they really participate (so that people might know them better)? Did they post about having problems with the item they're now selling?
  4. Request contact information from the seller and test them where possible (get name, phone #s, physical and email addresses) to make sure they work as a way to get in touch with them.
  5. Document your transaction publicly on the forum. If a seller insists on communicating only via PM or email be suspicious. If the seller does not post a 'item sold' once you've sent payment, we suggest that the buyer proactively post something like 'payment sent' on the forum so that if the seller has intentions of promising the item to multiple buyers and running off with their money that other buyers are alerted earlier. We suggest you 'quote' the original post of the seller so that their comments are captured and cannot be edited once sold to you.

These rules are subject to change at any given time. It is your responsibility to ensure you're following the rules before posting in the Marketplace Forums.

  • 2003 Yukon SLT 4x4 (Pic Heavy)

    Welp, no longer for sale. We had a little incident last week and the truck is now being totalled by insurance.

    Very clean nicely optioned 2003 GMC Yukon SLT 4x4. Light Peter in color, grey interior. All of the pricey “maintenance” parts recently replaced – these are all the problematic things that would need replacing on most other GMT800 vehicles. Everything works on it (many have burned out interior bulbs, inoperable heated seats, and bad gauge stepper motors). Selling only because I worked at GM and recently moved to FCA, and wanted to drive an FCA vehicle for parking purposes. Currently has ~136k miles, but still driving it here and there so mileage will continue to go up. Carfax is clean other than I recently (November) hit a deer. Pics of damage are included – it was all superficial. No frame damage, no body panels even needed to be replaced – it dented the bumper and hood lip and broke the grill and trans cooler. A/C condenser and radiator were also replaced.

    I’ve replaced the problem areas – namely, the OE GMT800 fluid lines rot out and fuel pumps fail. All work was done by me, but I can show receipts for materials:
    • All new iridium plugs & wires (within last 15k miles, done in Feb ‘17)
    • New Bosch upstream O2’s (within last 15k miles, done in Feb ‘17)
    • New Delco fuel pump (within last 12k miles, done in April ‘17)
    • New gauge cluster stepper motors, replaced all cluster/steering wheel bulbs (within last 12k miles, done in April ‘17)
    • All new Bilstein 5100 series shocks. New Moog rear springs. (within last 10k miles, done in May ’17)
    • All new OE vinyl coated brake lines (within the last 7k miles, done in June ‘17)
    • All new calipers, rotors, and pads (within the last 7k miles, done in June ‘17)
    • All new OE fuel lines from fuel rail to tank (within the last 7k miles, done in June ‘17)
    • New 265/75-16 Cooper AT/3 All Terrain Tires (within the last 7k miles, done in July ‘17)
    • New Radiator, A/C Condenser, Trans Cooler (just done in November – love tapped a deer)

    Interior is very clean and everything works!
    • Push button 4wd (Auto, 2Hi, 4Hi, 4Lo)
    • Factory heated leather seats
    • “Tri-Zone” climate control (driver, passenger, and rear)
    • Power folding mirrors
    • Sunroof
    • BOSE (sweet 6 disc in dash for your Ja Rule CD!)
    • 3rd row seating
    • Trailer brake controller (aftermarket)
    • Remote Start (aftermarket)

    Drivetrain runs like new. HVAC blend motors work as they should. Normal superficial corrosion on frame; body is very clean underneath. Paint is very good. Rockers are not rusted/rotted out like most GMT800’s.

    Overall, it’s a very clean and very reliable vehicle. I do have the driver’s side step. Removed it to replace the brake lines and haven’t put it back on. Going to list online at $8,900 – would move from that a little for a quick Motown sale. Located in Macomb Township.

    Superficial Deer Hit: All has been repaired (pics above are after repairs were made)

    Bump - really dragging my feet on listing as I don't want to deal with the CL idiots and my free time is limited.

    Throwing it out there - if someone were interested at $8k, I'd let it go for that to someone on here if you make the sale smooth and easy. Would like to see it go before the end of the month. Make me an offer if you're interested.

        Haha, thanks! Hey, I was looking to stay at GM but they basically spent years promising promotions "if I was patient", kept throwing me in tough roles, and most importantly, kept dragging my ass downtown. We're building a house in northern Bruce Twp, so Ren Cen isn't an option for me (at least, not one I'd consider).

        FCA stepped up with a promotional offer and appropriate compensation for the level. Had to jump for it!

        While I now rock an '08 Grand Cherokee, the SS is going nowhere! And, actually, I found out my boss (Director here) has a '17 'vette. He told me he would have considered a Viper, but we don't make them in a convertible.
