Re: Changes for 2015?

I would love that.....to be able to open the rear while driving and not have to worry about the glass slamming down. I guess the 2014 guys don't gotta worry about that.

Take a 5 gallon bucket. If you do get stuck you can pour a bucket of water near the tires to firm it up a little and it helps somewhat.

Re: I messed up

I agree. It probably has the gunk still in the pump/line/injector. I wouldn't use Seafoam though it still under warranty, let the dealer take care of it. Don't mention what happened though.
