Cobbs broke it and RUDYS FIXED IT!

Well as many of you guys know I took my truck to Cobbs March 22nd for the build in the thread I started on that day.

I feel that I can finally spill the beans and let everyone know what has really been going on.

In summary John Cobb is completely incompetent of anything and my truck was totally screwed. On April 15th I went and got my truck after weeks of getting told he was working on it and getting no where.

When I arrived to pick up my truck it was still being put back together by his new mechanic. It would barely crank and would cutoff when any amount of throttle was applied.

I took it to Aaron at Rudys Diesel on a trailer and he had it completely torn down and rebuilt correctly and running in three days. He bent over backwards to get me in on such short notice and got it running great.

Aaron and his mechanic, John, found a horror story once they started to dive in my truck. Just to name a few loose/missing bolts in the engine, bed not bolted down, leaking fuel profusely, ground straps missing. It would have been a complete loss had I attempted to drive it at all.

I cant stress how thankful I am that Aaron took me in and got it running right. He found so many things wrong, but throughout the whole process called me daily sometimes even 3 times a day to let me know how things were going! He assured me that with all that was messed up he could get it fixed and it would be ok!

The only reason I havent picked it up yet is because I was so happy with Aaron and his work I decided to go ahead and add some parts and a full suncoast!

I have learned through out this whole ordeal that nobody in the diesel world wants to help John because he has screwed them all over.
He tried to blame this problem on everyone else including Elite and Spartan tuning. Lets see if any of the big players step in here and take up for him?
There is a reason two of the three employees have quit since my build started at his shop! The last employee he has is a fellow named Josh who is fresh out of Wyotech....poor kid. I hope he sees the light and gets out!

I have been silent for all this time because John wanted to save face and what is left of his reputation. He asked me not to post anything and in return he would pay my bill at Rudys. He has even lied about that and hasnt returned my phone calls/texts/PMs for 2 weeks!

To anybody looking for parts/service/builds/KNOWLEDGE...........DO NOT CALL COBBS DIESEL PERFORMANCE in Loudon, TN!
There are other business that have great reputations and knowledge.
RUDYS DIESEL PERFORMANCE!
Why buy a part and worry about if its even going to show up? I can promise Aaron will beat the price and you wont be sorry. Hes a great guy, will talk to you as long as you want and has the knowledge!

In closing....

I am flying out to Efland,NC to pick up my truck tommorow morning and driving to TS in Bowling Green for the weekend.

I feel that people need to know about this because every week we all seem to see that post about Cobbs!?!? My GOAL is to shut him down and make sure he doesnt keep screwing people over. I personally cant wait to see him at TS!
I have no problems elaborating on any part of this entire post......if you have a question please ask and I will do my best to answer it asap.


Thanks for listening and I hope that this can help at least one person from getting screwed again.

Here's some of the stuff we found-

Battery hold down missing on passenger side
Engine harness to ECM plug broken
Engine harness to frame rail plug broken
Master cyl. only held on by one nut - The other is MIA
Hydroboost lines hooked up backwards
The only teflon washers were on the fuel cooler - all others were copper
Body ground not hooked up
Engine ground strap not hooked up
GP controller missing 2 of the 3 hold down bolts
Heater return hose not bolted down, this is the one that is very easy to break on passenger side
Trans dipstick loose
Cooling system filled with straight H2O
Headbolts 11-15 finger tight
Head studs not seated properly
All exhaust gaskets looked original
Fuel return line laying on front driveshaft
Bed not bolted down
The wiring could have been done better by my 9yo.
I found some body plugs missing under the truck
A/C was empty and lines were only finger tight

I'm sure I didn't list everything, but the fuel leak that it was brought to us for was the low pressure system leaking at the HPFP because of copper washers.

Truth hurts sometime but maybe he will get his act together or go away way to much traffic on this site for a bad reputation. Glad to hear that Aaron got you fixed up!
