...that something just doesn’t quite add up?

Guy calls me from a Utah area code, no caller ID other than “Salt Lake City”, asking for a “behind the axle” fuel tank and already had a VIN ready (NO ONE has their VIN ready when calling, unless they’ve been playing the system).

THIS VIN.

From THIS TRUCK.

Obviously there’s something fishy going on, which is why I googled the VIN after telling him the price of the tank and getting the response “Oh, that’s not bad, I could pay that... (long pause) I will call you back, can I have the part number please?” and found this auction listing.

Again. Felt fishy.

Now is this someone that bought the truck and is restoring it, or salvaging it for parts? Why does he need JUST the auxiliary fuel tank?
