Default Still Open?

I'm just curious if they are still open? I have been calling them for the last 3 weeks with I think her name is Sherry answering a hand full of times. She said someone would call me back but to no avail. I have had good luck with them before this but just wondering if anyone has heard what's going on with them. I have some IDM's down there and a couple set of tunes.

Yea sure seems like the case for the last couple months. If you check out their reviews on google they haven't been very good for quite a while. Which sucks they use to be great. I rarely had an issue. Of course sometimes it'd take a little bit to get some tunes back but they always answered and if I bugged them enough stuff got done. But I don't know what to do now. They still have some of my IDM's and tunes that I already paid for.

It's been down to an answering machine now. No returned calls and they have my truck. Guess I'll have to fly out and see what's what.

Nevermind. I messaged them a link to this thread and it's an automated response. That's why it says very responsive. That sucks.

Dejavu....my friend called me up and asked if I've heard anything about DynoProven not answering the phone or returning calls. I started laughing. He tells me that he paid Jonathan for parts and never received them. Luckily, he paid by Am Ex so he's covered.

He told me that he gave him multiple sets of injector cores, a transmission core and few other parts for 7.3s.

DocBar, I would work on this asap. I would hate for you to lose your truck due to no fault of your own.

So this has happened before? Is that why they had to change names a few years ago? I've had decent luck with them until a couple months ago.

Try emailing them. I was talking to someone just a few weeks ago that said they more or less can't find any help but are mainly responding to email.

New name ...same shop

Jonathan used to do just tuning which he was great at. He had a portable dyno and traveled all over. I believe he worked out of Beans shop. Then he started No Limit Tuning and Design. Then NLTD changed to DynoProven.

His wife, Cassie was also a kick a$$ tuner with EFI Live for the Duramax crowd.

Yeah. My truck has been there since April of 2016. I went to pick it up last March and it was worse than when they got it. I was going to get it in August but Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, where I'm from and my appendix ruptured in mid Sept. I spent two weeks in the hospital and have been dealing with a very large open abdominal wound since. Been a ****ty year. And my wife got diagnosed with cancer and RA

Man that's horrible. I hope you guys are all right. I have tried calling again and emailing. To now avail. I'm betting it's a lost cause now but was hoping to get some of my parts back. I looked at their google reviews and they have quit a few from the last couple weeks. I hate shady shop and there seems to be more and more in this industry. It sucks.

Is there anyone in the " neighborhood" that can check in on the shop and your truck? Sorry to hear about your health problems as well as your wife, sending prayers.

It's running, but getting oil in the coolant somewhere. Before Jon got it, the oil cooler cracked in NYC and I have no idea how many miles I put on it in that condition. When Jon got it, the performance issues were no hot restart and dying at idle. I had the engine and coolant systems flushed in NYC. Jon did a few upgrades for me: FB ******, sump, bigger sticks and fixed some wiring issues.

Jon really is a good guy and very talented. I think his business grew way too fast and he could never find a single mechanic that he could trust to do a job. One man can only do so much. I hate to hear he is going thru such a hard time. I've tried to get in touch with him today but no luck. Hopefully he will call me back. I been worried about him. It can't be easy watching your dream fade away like that. Hell I would even drive down and help him get some stuff done one weekend if he wanted.

I got my truck back, made it 200 miles and it **** the bed on me. It's now at a shop in Kentucky waiting on funds. It cost me $3,500 at dynoproven.

Disappointing to say the least. Seems to be happening with some of what seemed to be the better shops.

Trying to get my truck out of there from my build. Can't even reach him on his personal phone. I have way too much money and time into DynoProven for him to skip town. I also tried the whole going down and helping him out with the build thing. Drove through the night from Ohio. He was sick but didnt let me know until 6 pm that day when i had already given up. Good guy and he really knows his stuff. Just needs to get his s*** taken care of and go back to strictly tuning/selling his own parts.

He is not a good guy for what he did. Nothing can be said otherwise...

You would think he would at least contacted the people who had vehicles there to come and get them. I wouldn't be surprised to have the shop not contact people with parts in house even though that is ****ty- but leaving customer trucks is unbelievable. I hope that everyone involved gets their shiit back

I’d be going down there with a trailer and getting mine back. Screw that. Sorry for anyone involved but that’s some scummy chit.

There is a new fence around the building. No one can get in without contacting Rossville city police.

I know Jonathan left his previous employer and opened his own business to try and get away from issues like these. Things seemed to be going great for him early on. I guess getting too big too fast and not being able to manage it (among other things) did him in.

Isn't this the same situation that Mid Atlantic Diesel went through? Sucks for all involved to get screwed like this.

Man, I used to work for Jon a few years ago, probably talked to some of you and worked on your trucks. I'll say Jon always meant well but he got in way over his head and made some poor business decisions (one of the biggest reasons I left). Everyone there including him worked long hard hours to try and take care of the customers. I can't speak to anything since then, but I just found out about all of this from a customer and it boggled my brain a bit. Not sure the details of what he got involved with or what happened but it sucks that it happened. I learned a lot from him and that business and really worked to help it succeed.

He always seemed to pop up if someone PMd him. Maybe he had it sent to notify him when he was sent a message.

And Altered Attitude, the suspension guy out in cali, last year or the year before. Used to do amazing work, then one day just started taking money and trucks, doing jack, and really running something reminiscent of a pyramid scheme. Eventually people started showing up with cops and dragging their half assembled trucks out on trailers, and never seeing the tens of thousands (maybe more) they gave him.

The last few pages of this thread from the 7.3 Super Duty section says it all. Guy started out paying for a great build and got the total shaft.

This is old news. He totally screwed me way back when he was considered by all a “great guy”. He’s always been a sorry turd. He just had plenty of blinded nut swingers tricked into supporting his sorry a$$. I hope they lock him up and throw away the key.

I can’t remember where I read it, but it seems like MB Diesel (don’t quote me on that) or someone took apart some failed Jr’s only to see that they were basically a stock pump. Can’t remember if it was the Org or Nation. But I read it.

He is truly a worthless piece of **** that many at one time spoke highly of when others that experienced his worthyness. He couldn’t write a clean tune for my truck to safe his worthless life . Needs his ass stomped before after jail .

Sorry guys ..I have not been on in a long time.

Billy texted me and linked this thread last week.

I have had no contact with Jonathan for almost 2 years now......I was a friend of his for close to 15 years and was dropped out of the blue one day..... I talked with Cassie for a bit afterwards but have fallen out of touch with her as well. I had no idea this was going on..zero. I am shocked by the meteoric fall from grace. I always tried to represent myself, his company (as i was an employee) openly, honestly and fairly. I am humiliated that I put my trust in him.... I do know drugs are the issue and a mountain of legal troubles are pending...

For all of you wondering if Karma has paid a visit to him yet...To date he lost his home, vehicles, tools, equiptment (including his dyno) his wife, his shop, most, if not all of his friends...and he still has the law to answer to...I got this info from another former employee.

I am sorry for all those victimized by Jonathan.

I had no idea, if I did, I would of helped in any way I could of.

Jason

Hello everyone, just wanted to stop in and elaborate on the DP fiasco. I have been dealing w/ the Jones' since they were at Beans back in 2009. When I opened on my own in '12 they approached me to be a dealer for the product line, to which I agreed. Over the last few years, like many, I have never had a single issue up until the recent months. Things were slow here in KY this past summer, so at his request I closed down to let clientele build up, and to help Jonathan get caught up because of personal matters, and employee matters.

I arrived in late June and stayed until the 1st week of August, and basically emptied the parking lot by myself in the process. I met and worked for several great people, @powerjoke73 being one of them. Jonathan was doing his best to get me to stay and run his business, promising a very healthy salary and benefits, but something seemed off, something I hadn't noticed in what had been strictly phone orders for almost 6 years. I made my first trip down there for a dyno day last year, and was not impressed with the location, very ghetto, and very shady; however, when asked to come help, I didn't hesitate because he had always been there to help me, or direct me in what steps I needed to take. Things were alright for the most part, but I kept seeing him leave, well more like disappearing for hours and leaving everyone else to figure out what needed to be done, which is poor leadership in my opinion. On top of that, he was asking us to remove parts from his truck, or another person's truck, and install them on customer trucks, I put a stop to that immediately, and refused to proceed. If a customer orders a new part, that's what they get, bottom line, no exceptions. Money became an issue, people's checks were bouncing, parts weren't getting ordered, bill's weren't being paid, and people were getting testy. If he can't pay the people he has now, how can he promise me the salary he's pushing?

We also got into a fight over @powerjoke73's truck, and how he wanted me to install the fuel system, both @powerjoke73 and his father were there to see me loose my temper and walk off, and it was only 3 days later that I left. Fast forward to coming back to CHP...I absolutely do not work on Duramax powered truck unless it's tuning, or suspension lifts, I started working for a combined Ford/Dodge dealership in '04, so my background is strictly PSD & CTD. A customer who's truck I installed a 6.5" suspension lift and Dyno Proven EFI Live on brought me a stack of cash and wouldn't take no for an answer. He wouldn't let anyone else touch the truck because even though it would take me longer due to inexperience, he knew it would be done correctly. He paid up front for a PPE Stage 5 tranny w/ triple disc converter, 64mm billet wheel charger, and a set of 100HP injectors. The injectors were ordered from DDP, no issues there, Lenny & his crew are more than awesome. The transmixer and turbinator were ordered from DP, and that's when the real f***ery began for me. He delivered what appeared to be a freshly rebuild transmission, and the parts to build a turbo, to which he built on the spot in my facility. I paid the man, he left, only to never really be heard from again...This was mid October...

Installed everything without issue, fired the truck up, sounded great, throttle was great, but the transmixer was locked in limp mode w/ 20+ TCM codes. We attempted to get with Jonathan but that lead to no answers, read but unresponded texts, and "he's not here" when Sherry would decide to answer the shop phone. My customer drove down to DP 3 times and was fed all kinds of BS, and at one point, Jonathan had convinced him that I screwed him, took him for a fool, and overcharged him for used parts...I was ready to head south but couldn't due to work load, and it's probably a good thing I didn't because I would have hurt him...bad...After it was all said and done, not only is the transmission a 6 speed Allison rather than the needed 5 speed, but it was rebuilt over a year ago, and was removed from a truck that belongs to a customer of his that's currently in jail for quite a while, so guess who's in possession of stolen property?...This guy...Jones tried saying he had a mechanics lean on the truck and he could do whatever he wanted with it, turns out he in fact that he did not, he was selling other people's property to pay for whatever? I contacted my local law, and my county attorney, they assured me that I have nothing to worry about, a case in KY was opened, pictures, serial numbers, and documentation was made by my local authorities, however nothing could be done because no one could prove it stolen (owner is in jail) and there would have to be a case made in GA first.

My dumb *** took the dually in my sig down there to finish the build, and tune it, which never happened, but I do have it, and some of my parts back here in KY now. I received a message from a customer I had done a lot of work for down there stating that Jones was selling everything on FB, and moving, and sent me pictures of the private post. I immediately jumped in the truck and hit the road with the title to my truck, my parts list, and notified the Rossville PD who I was, what I was doing, and what I was coming for, because I'll be damned if he sells my s**t behind my back. Long story short, it took him 4 hours to come out of the house, he avoided me, and pretty much everyone with excuses of "i'll be right back" "let me take care of this" "i need to look at something real quick" etc. etc....I was there with about 30 other people at one time trying to collect parts, money, or a good right cross, and then it happened, he managed to disappear for about 20 minutes, and then all of a sudden he was at his house next door in cuffs. Show was over after that, nothing anybody could do.

Since then I've been down there 4 times with people I met over the summer in an attempt to get their legally owned belongings back to them. This last time was with @powerjoke73's father in an attempt to recovery whatever we could. We spoke with the detective face to face for over an hour, gave statements, filed cases, presented the transmission deal on my end to open the investigation and file charges, and was told to our face "I've chased all the leads I have found, searched all over the area and I have no idea where he is or where the trucks and parts are, and quite frankly you're wasting your time."....Remember when I said he was really trying to talk me into staying and running DP? Well he took me and showed me all kinds of places, met all kinds of people, all the different shops he sends things too, everything in an attempt to show me how awesome it was down there. What he didn't plan on was not only am I a farm boy, but my father and his father are both lifetime old school truck drivers...I have a photographic memory, and if you take me anywhere in the world, I can find my way back.

After speaking with several people and chasing down tow truck operators, they gave me a description of a place I had been before, but didn't have an exact address. I did some more digging and was able to get a landmark within 4 miles of the place, and that's all I needed, I knew exactly where to go, and when we got there it was like hitting the lottery. We immediately called the detective, he didn't believe us, said there was no way, so he was texted the location and pictures of the trucks parked in a mud field and hidden in the woods. After loading the truck we went after, he actually showed up and was very evasive and jumpy, and would not talk to me, but I wouldn't talk to me either if I did what he had done. So now I am purchasing a legit PPE Stage 5 from PPE, which is what I should have to begin with, but as I stated, I'm not a Dmax guy (tampoon wagons if you ask me) as well as filing charges against him for all of this. I don't care at all to make it up to my customer, that's what I was raised to do, but when you're a 32 year old sole business owner, no bank money, no family money, no investors, working and doing all of it out of your own back pocket it's a big hit.

It really sucks that somebody I looked up to for so long turned out to be such a piece of s**t. At one point he had me convinced that he was closing DP and moving all of the manufacturing equipment and dyno to my facility so "Cooper High Performance will blow up and make a name in the industry"...I was on cloud 9 you guys, finally all of my hard work, long hours, and soul pouring efforts were going to pay off, I would no longer be a small town one man show...Got dang was I ever wrong, and for the first time I was actually more than happy to be wrong.

If anybody has any questions or want more information, just hit me up on here or on FB, and i'll try to get back to you as quickly as possible. I'm not a big social media person, so if I don't reply immediately, I will as soon as I can. Thank you and God bless.

Jason tried several times to help me out after the issues that I had. I always appreciated him for that. Never once did he duck or dodge. He’s good in my book.
Nut swingers are nowhere to be found now. After constantly defending that sorry piece of ****! Jonathan has ALWAYS been worthless and shady since he went on his own. Truth always catches up to you in the end!!

I apologize if I seem to be beating a dead horse, but I just wanted to provide an update on the DP fiasco. Jones has been arrested again, this time rather than drugs, it's 2 counts of "Theft By Conversion". According to GA state law, TBC is obtaining another person's property or funds, and then unlawfully converting it for your own use or benefit. In KY we just call it theft or theft by deception. If under $500 it is handled as a misdemeanor and punishable up to 12 months, but if greater than $500 it is tried as a felony with 1-10 years behind bars, and up to 20 years for a second offense.

Again, I apologize for beating the horse, I only want those involved or know of someone involved to know what is going on. I'm not sure which customer(s) have seen this through, but myself, my business, and my customer will also be doing the same for similar charges as well as stolen property.

I think it is good to let people know if they want to pursue further actions.

I wish I would've just drove off when I went to get the $2K we settled on with my truck. It made it a whole 200 miles before crapping the bed. Total spent this time: $3,500 for a dead truck. SMDH.
