    If everyone will please be on the lookout for Gen 2 Triple pass radiators that might turn up on Ebay or elsewhere online. There was recently a shipment of radiators from our manufacturer to us that somewhere fell off the UPS truck. These are only Gen 2 units and may reference the part number 342-ALAN that comes on the boxes.

    The odds that a scumbag can sell them on craigslist is close to zero. That leaves pretty much Flea-Bay and few other auction sites as route to make Christmas cash.
    I think odds are reasonably good, they dont fit Cummins diesel pickup trucks anyway.... Hope you find the rad-thieves.

    Unless.... they are total retards and sell it for aluminum.

    The radiators associated with this thread are like Sasquatch son...a myth. Until the OP posts an attached purchase order with the name and number of the supplier, I wouldn't believe they were ever ordered.

    Let me clean this thread up with a few known facts: Will was booted from this site as a vendor because he didn't pay his bills at VCA and a lot of people complained.

    He is granted the ability to post by the mercy of a person or two on this site. It is that very mercy that continues to enable and embolden him to not only continue his dysfunctional business practices...but to ask the very people who distrust him the most for help.

    Man that really has to be a bad feeling to have things stolen from you, lucky for you that it wasn't anything more significant like a car or large amount of money.

    Cognitive-behavioral models
    Cognitive-behavioral models have been replacing psychoanalytic models in describing the development of kleptomania. Cognitive-behavioral practitioners often conceptualize the disorders as being the result of operant conditioning, behavioral chaining, distorted cognitions, and poor coping mechanisms.[35][36] Cognitive-behavioral models suggest that the behavior is positively reinforced after the person steals some items. If this individual experiences minimal or no negative consequences (punishment), then the likelihood that the behavior will reoccur is increased. As the behavior continues to occur, stronger antecedents or cues become contingently linked with it, in what ultimately becomes a powerful behavioral chain. According to cognitive-behavioral theory (CBT), both antecedents and consequences may either be in the environment or cognitions. For example, Kohn and Antonuccio (2002) describe a client’s antecedent cognitions, which include thoughts such as "I’m smarter than others and can get away with it"; "they deserve it"; "I want to prove to myself that I can do it"; and "my family deserves to have better things". These thoughts were strong cues to stealing behaviors. All of these thoughts were precipitated by additional antecedents which were thoughts about family, financial, and work stressors or feelings of depression. "Maintaining" cognitions provided additional reinforcement for stealing behaviors and included feelings of vindication and pride, for example: "score one for the 'little guy' against the big corporations". Although those thoughts were often afterward accompanied by feelings of remorse, this came too late in the operant sequence to serve as a viable punisher. Eventually, individuals with kleptomania come to rely upon stealing as a way of coping with stressful situations and distressing feelings, which serve to further maintain the behavior and decrease the number of available alternative coping strategies.[37]

    Hahaha...I'm a lot more persistent than smart, but thank you. Bob has all the brains. Anyway, a bunch of people have been hurt financially because of Will's laundry list of dysfunctions. He's put gray hairs on people's heads too. When he posts here, it's akin to pissing on someone's grave.

    I heard he has ripped many people off...I guess Karma is a bitch, but you know IF these were actually ordered and stolen, then they were most definitely pre-paid by the customers, who will be the ultimate victim in the end.

    So, your point is that it was a good idea for the vendor to post here, no matter what the motive. In the end, the post serves to protect the Viper owners who paid for them. Although some think that a thread for that was a terrible idea, it doesn't seem so bad to me.

    You are right, there is no arguing. But no good deed goes unpunished...especially Will's.

    Oh no! Something was stolen from Will! We must keep our eyes peeled because we don't want anyone stealing from that class act! *end non-caring sarcasm*

    I can assure you of two potential scenarios:

    1. The radiators were never ordered.

    2. They were ordered, and now they're in Dave's closet.
