Uhm, no. The advertised price was, in fact, absurdly fair. I'd been researching these things for months, and it was a case of being everything we wanted in a stick shift model (tougher to sell, for them, in suburban Baltimore). I only paid $1100 more for a 4x4 with goodies than the 4x2 strippo model we also were looking at. Price paid was almost exactly kbb private party value, which is unheard of when buying from a stealer. But, I can see how you assumed I got ripped, because normally that would apply when paying an ad price.
