Find rock crawlers for sale on sites such as eBay, Craigslist, Pro-Line Racing and RockCrawler.com. Buyers should always test drive a rock crawler before making a purchase to test both the mechanical components and the general size and comfort of the vehicle.
Buying a rock crawler online is a good way to access a wide range of models and styles without the need to visit multiple locations. However, online shoppers need to be wary of ads and sellers, as many sites contain listings with inaccurate information as well as complete scams. To avoid a scam on an online classifieds site such as Craigslist, avoid sharing personal information or banking information with the seller, even when meeting in person. Never send a seller money electronically or through a service such as Western Union without receiving the rock crawler first, as there is no way to ensure product delivery.
Buyers should take the time to properly examine the rock crawler in person. The inspection should start with a look at the engine and tires to make sure there are no obvious issues such as loose or missing components. Buyers should drive the rock crawler to make sure the steering wheel and brakes work and that it feels comfortable.
