    They are officially out of business. They took my 700 dollars and never sent me my locker and only parts of my drive flanges. Keith, the owner apparently, lied to me over and over again. I'm now disputing the charge on my CC. Prior to my order, I always had a good impression of WMS. They certainly had some talented machine guys which is one of the reasons i placed my order with them. I still cant understand why they lied to me and tried to screw me out of $700. So look at it this way, at least you didn't just send them your hard earned dollars for your new toy and only got a reaming instead. Thanks again LEPER!


    P.S. Just wanted to add that Kyle Pope, ex-employee of WMS, always proved to be a stand up guy during the entire ordeal. He had long since cut ties with WMS and he still tried to help me get my locker and flanges.

    Oh yeah, the former owner of WMS is now in Tulsa, Ok. running a shop called ATOR. I wouldn't recommend doing business with them either.

    I couldn't imagine how pissed I would be over $700. Just think how mad the people are who prepaid for one of their $2500 custom made 14 bolts!

    Koldsimer , IF the former owner is in Ok Just drive over there and make him pay up . I'm sure you could get a bunch of guy's to go with ya . Post up on PBB in the bad sellers section and let the PBB mafia hassle him . I had a problem with risingsun engines in Chico,Ca and I drove the 9 hours down to their shop and walked in with the toyota tranny they sold me (junk) and they made it right :D . It's sometimes better to meet face to face and settle a dispute ;) . good luck on getting your money back . ATOR ? Another Terrible Orifice Reamer :haha: :eek1: .

    Its come up as a thought. Id be willing to drive him up there. But ive heard 2 different stories. That the shop moved across town. And that the shop has shut down and is no longer. If we went up there would anyone be there, would we find who we needed to talk to??

    I think somebody needs to spill the beans.

    I ordered some of there fairleads about two months ago and received them no problem. But now I'm confused because they are ATOR 4x4 fairleads. When I purchased them from WMS they said they had left over stock from consolidating their ATOR department whatever that meant. So he was secretly moving his shop, changing his name or what? It seems there are a series of lies being told here.
