He was behind his house checking out something and the truck got stuck so he tried rocking it out. He heard a "pop" sound and the truck shut it self off. He opened the hood a little bit, just where the latch catches it and the engine bay was in flammed. The fire was so hot the glass ended up melting to the floor boards. He lost his rifle which was up against the back of the cab and his VF radio which was in the cup holder on the floor.


He is selling everything from the box back (lights, bumper, axle, rims etc...)

Wow, scary stuff. I have had a truck catch fire in my garage, a car start while driving and a semi's brakes catch fire, although none have been nearly that bad. Since those incidents I always feel incredibly bad for the owner, I don't know what I'd do if my Ranger burnt after I'm done all my work.

He called his VF dpt and they went right there in less then 5 mins. I helped him after drag it to his drive way. We think it was a fuel line but not sure. Teh insurance guy is going to his house Wednesday to figure out what happened.

I'll know by Wednesday after the insurance guy looks at it. I think the front of the box where the cab is closest to is a little burnt and the drop in line is "crispy". I know that box has no rust on it

Thats what I told me cousin when we were moving it. I could only
imagine what it would have looked like if the fire got to the gas tank.

So Its a go, we are starting to part it.

Box

Tail lights
Tail light harness
Rear bumper
Rear bumper brackets
4 alloy rims and a steel spare

Pretty much anything from the cab back.
