I've had good luck with my local dealer (Fury Motors in South St. Paul, MN) for myself and my brother-in-law.

Any question or complaint I have had was...

Re: Need to access center stop led wiring

The wire harness comes in underneath the tailgate spoiler.
You have to remove the spoiler to get to the wire harness.

Just locate the radio fuse (or fuses) and pull them for a couple minutes.

Re: E85 can I do anything to improve fuel mileage?

LOL, the money isn't going into the pockets of American farmers.
It's going into the pockets of the ethanol producers and the congress-critters they bought off to give them subsidies.
