I’m sorry for missing the updates on this thread, guys. I want to offer my assistance by arranging calls from your regional customer service managers. So I can do this, please send me a PM with your full name, approximate mileage, best daytime phone number, dealer name/state, and VIN.

dmortonkingston, unfocused1, mr_cassandra, magnumea, & Diamondback,

It’s awesome to see all the great help!

Also, a big “welcome” goes out to the newcomers on the forum.
