How do you search Craigslist or FB Marketplace?

Every morning I go to CL and in my local area I search
"6x5.5" (for wheels/tires/spacers)
"6x139.5" (for wheels/tires/spacers)
"Cherokee", then add a filter for max year of 1983
"Gladiator" (still with a filter for max year of 1983)
"Jeep Truck" (still with a filter for max year of 1983)
"AMC" (still with a filter for max year of 1983)

Occasionally (maybe every other week) I will also search "Wagoner" because it is amazing how many times it is misspelled.
Occasionally I will search "FSJ" or "Full Size Jeep" but I rarely get anything juicy with those terms.

I am not on facebook but the boss is so occasionally I will search FB Marketplace with the same terms. You can search FB M without an account but need an account to contact sellers.

What about you folks? How do you search? Do you use the same terms?

I use search tempest also for CL. I am amazed at what is on facebook market place but trying to open an account, well I got blocked. I deleted my attempts and got access again. Got a friend that will contact sellers if I just can't do without something. So far I have not done anything because I don't need or want more junk.

Search terms...
wagoneer (wagoner, good idea!!)
jeep truck
Jeep cj
land cruiser
john deere +450C
fiberform (old Spokane built boats in the 70's and 80's)
np205 +205
busty (oops I mean rusty)

Ebay gets actual part numbers....
Am I done yet?

Holy Moly, I am done.....

Jeep- any year up to 1992

AMC- on cl main page. I want to see everything from parts to vehicles available in the area. Most times though, there is NOTHING in the local area.

Usually I'll then search for anything and everything up to 1992. I just plain and simple like old cars and want nothing to do with newer.

Don't do facebook. Never have, never will. Some people are shocked to hear this from me as I'm in my 20's.

I don't really know why I still search for vehicles anymore... I got 6... Guess I'm addicted, and it's the only hobby I enjoy anymore.
1990 Grand Wagoneer-"The Wagon"
AMC 360, TF727, NP229, 2.72 gears, 2" lift
Rancho 44044 springs, Rusty's 2" AAL, TFI w/ MSD C/R
...not too rusty anymore
Lots of patina and my daily driver.

The others
Too many to list here anymore...
I got a problem with collecting cars...
