In 2011, Jeep came out with the Wrangler Overland Concept. It was a white Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon, lifted, on 35-inch mud terrain tires, which were wrapped around white steel 17-inch wheels. It had a whole bunch of AEV add-ons, too, and frankly it reminded me of Land Rover Defender 110 wagon. For me in was love on first sight and I promised myself that if I ever get a Wrangler, I would try to replicate this.
Late one night, while half asleep, on my quest to find a new family vehicle that was not a complete bore, I come upon a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Sahara Unlimited that was built to replicate that exact concept. It looked perfect to me and was even equipped exactly how I would want it. I was in love and I was going to buy it. What other “family” vehicle today can be equipped with steel wheels, steel bumpers, and a manual transmission? I cannot think of one.
I made it my objective to buy it. I was following the auction, studying, came up with t he exact amount I was willing to pay for this 40,000 mile vehicle when suddenly… the auction ended early.
What the hell?

I contacted the seller and he said that he was selling it to someone off eBay and if that sale was to fall through he would contact me. Ugh.
I guess the lesson learned here is that if you want a car on eBay badly, contact the seller directly as soon as possible. Anyone have any other tips for the future? There was also a nice 2010 4Runner Trail edition that disappeared on me. Double ugh.
