Alright, I was just kidding now lol. Just trying to cheer myself up a bit...It's cool, just n=ot for me and what I like to do. Too complex, 366miles and I'd have that baby begging for a mechanic after one trail ride. The speedo, take and odometer don't work so I wouldn't trust their given mileage and it said they can't get it to pass emissions...

i found an 03 LII with 19,000miles, just checking out my options. i'd rather it be a ranger so i can use leftovers, besides i loved my lil truck...That yellow truck has a trailmaster lift, I'm not a big fan of torsion bar relocation lifts. No offense superlift and trailmaster guys.

I wanna see the fire report so bad. I just have this feeling that it wasn't an accident, I think someone sabatoged it....maybe it's all in my head too.

damn man thats horibble. I would definatly make sure optima pays for everything. Their batteries a suppose to be for aftermarket applications, there is no reason for it doing what it did.

It's Optima's MSDS sheet. It says:
"Section 6 - Fire-fighting Measures
Extinguishing media - Multipurpose dry chemical or multipurpose CO2 .
Fire fighting procedures - Evacuate area. Self-contained breathing apparatus must be worn to prevent possible inhalation of acid mists, smoke and decomposition products in a fire. Remove all ignition sources. Cool battery(s) to prevent rupture.
Unusual fire and explosion hazards - Hydrogen gas may be produced and may explode if ignited. Remove all ignition sources. Ventilate area."

Dude, I am so sorry to see what happened, I feel like crying with you. Maybe it'll work out if you can end up with a L2. Hope everything works out, if you do end up parting out some of your accessories, I may be interested, I'm in Pittsburgh. Good luck with everything man.

holy **** man. I really feel your pain, hope everyhting works out for you, and you can get another truck. thats just horrible.

a couple winters back my friend was snowmobiling, he came back to his house and parked it went in his house and heard an explosion. the thing freakin blew up! It was over vacation, and i was trying to call him all the time, nobody picked up the phone, i sledded up there and saw his ruined, burnt up sled. and the shed it was by was all burnt up too, so i thought he had died. he was ok though thankfully, but scary stuff...

I don't think that Fire and explosion hazard is JUST on Optimas though.

^^^I know, everyone's always saying it's a safer alternative though. It's not 100% fail safe and here they are even admitting to it.

Wow man, sorry to hear about this.

If you are still having trouble with your insurance company not returning calls, tell them that you will notify the state insurance commissioner. They will probably get really nice after that. We had the same problem when our Ford Contour was totalled. They quit returning calls and we had a non-driveable car. Finally mentioning the state ins. commissioner got them to return calls and resolve their **** up. They will try their best to screw you over, even though you pay their bills, so be prepared to fight back.

Trust me man. I'm not going to shut up until I get a check to buy a replacement Ranger FX4 with under 30k(as previously mentioned). I got the liability form and release form faxed to me around 5p. The claims adjuster was supposedly in his office til 7p. I called approx 15 times, leaving five voicemails. I left his immediate supervisor two messages. They're not gonna stop hearing from me until I get what I deserve. This was my baby for God's sakes. I hope they realize I'm not going to go away...
