While I'm not out anything more than a bunch of time and effort, I think the P4X4 community needs to be aware when dealing with Dustin Bylina (bigbogger). This guy wasted hours of my time as he wanted to buy my comp moon buggy. Now that he's fully flaked out on the contract, he won't stop texting me with his BS. It's be nice if he'd just stop, but he hasn't and thats why this thread is being created.

We wrote up a purchase agreement which he signed,and he sent me his Jeep title as collateral. He backed out of the contract due to loss of emplyoment. While that would be a completely valid reason for me to let him out of the contract, there is quite a long history of him doing business in the same manner all over the East coast, and I really think he just changed his mind and decided he wanted something different. I'm sending his title back because I just don't want to deal with it, but I wish he would learn his lesson. It doesn't take long to realize something is "off" with this guy and I'm fortunate to have some friends in that area that alerted me to his repeated actions of wasting people's time. At least I had a little warning that this may happen. There are a number of threads on the Rausch Creek forum addressing this individual, and one of them even asks whether or not anyone on Pirate has been burned by him. I'm just giving you guys a heads up to be cautious in any dealings with him.

Here are a few of the RC threads to read if you're bored...they're actually pretty funny!!!

On January 6 he asked me how much I wanted for my jeep. I gave him a price via text, he told me to hang on to it for him. On the 8 th I text him and asked when he wanted the jeep because I planned to post it for sale very soon. He told me to go ahead and post it as he had bought "scrappy". There is more obviously.

He spotted for me on one comp of RcRocs. We went for a practice day that included some trails. I took pictures on one trail that I let him drive my jeep on. He was working on some oil rigs up on northern PA, showing people pictures of him on the trails in his jeep. His jeep he was showing pictures of was and still is my jeep. Shows the type of person he is. I only wish he had put all the $ and time into his jeep he was showing everyone, my bank account would be allot fatter, and would have had allot more time with the family.

He also has user names of:
copperheadcrawler
bigzj
bylinas tire grooving

Dustin has screwed some of the best and nicest people in the sport in the NE on vehicle/part purchases. I am sure if someone were to total up the value of time and $ lost with this guy, the total would be in the 10s of thousands. There are many vendors/shops in the North East who won't do business with him, even if paid upfront. He just needs to go away.

It was said best to me by someone who knows/knew him well, "Dustin is not necessarily a bad or evil guy, he is just dumb and doesn't understand how the sport and world works, he's not trying to screw people, it just always works out that way". Thought that about sums it up right there.

I know I am not "perfect" and I have had my fair share of "false starts" when it comes to 4x4 projects, and as a Vendor I should "play nice" and give people the benefit of the doubt, but I can echo some of the issues in dealing with Dustin. I could also share a lot of 2nd hand stories, but I won't. Hopefully some of those people will step up and lay it out once and for all.

Anyway, a while ago he bought the comp chassis I was building before I decided to go back to school. After dicking me around on the price and lowballing me $500, I finally gave in and told him "Cash talks." After a few more weeks of getting dicked around he asked me to deliver it. I told him $1 a mile and I would need the money upfront along with the payment for the buggy (still hadn't paid at this point despite offers to send a deposit). He tried to say that delivery should be included :shaking:. Anyway, long story short, he some how weasels the FAB SHOP to come pick it up and rather than CASH which was our deal they brought a CHECK :mad3:. Had it been a personal check I would have told him to pound sand, but seeing as I needed the money and the check was from the Fab Shop I let it slide to just be done with it. In the mean time I had three other offers for full price, no deliver, and no hassle. Sadly I am a "too nice" kind of guy and went with the "first offer." Oh well, egg on my face. :(

You would think the story would be over, but it's not. For the next YEAR all Dustin did was bug the SHIT out of me about getting pictures of his buggy, getting a sponsor packet done up, etc. Again, I told him CASH talked and when the buggy was FINISHED we could set something up.

The guy is an idiot. He has no idea how the world works. He thinks you are his best friend just because you know his name and talked to him at least once. He expects the best price on everything and then expects it be hand delivered to him. He rarely ever lifts a finger to do any of his own leg work. There are countless stories out there of other people calling for parts, brokering sales, and picking shit up for him. My only advice is to turn and run, don't walk but run, the other way from this jack ass.

Luckily I cut my ties with him a long time ago and pretty much do my best to ignore him. However, it is hard to go anywhere or talk to anyone on the east coast that doesn't have a "Dustin Story." :homer:

I will say the best laugh I ever got was when he got his low-riding mustang cobra STUCK in the Rausch parking lot... I guess Karma does come around, just not as strong as one would hope sometimes. :p

+++

Again, I know I am not perfect and have made my fair share of mistakes throughout the years, so I am not trying to throw stones here. Just trying to do my part to warn the rest of the wheeling community that this shit has gotten too out of hand. This is not a one-time thing with him. He continually screws good people over and is running out of friendly people here on the east coast. So be warned.

I figured once I posted this thread many stories would come out. It's obvious when someone has multiple screen names that something might not be right. While I honestly don't think Dustin is out to deliberatey screw anybody, people need to be aware of the experience they are about to begin.

Dustin, the best tging is for you just to learn from this thread. Nobody wants to hear the countless excuses you have. Take the time to evaluate what has gone wrong with EVERY transaction, learn to be a man, and stop wasting people's time!

Hell yea. We got a comma in the wrong spot and ? all piled up at the end to make up for all the other punctuation he missed. I really hope spelling is next.
