    looks like that fire started in the cab of that truck...maybe arson? the truck was just sitting there all burned up? no police or even a tow truck?

    looks like a stolen joy ride... did you report it to the police?

    hmm... it looks like most of the fire on the front side of the truck was located in the area around the battery. i wonder if hitting the guardrail post shorted the battery out and started the fire. it looks like the area right behind the headlight could have been shoved back that far. puzzling i guess

    I think he just got sick of working on it and burned it and bought a chevy.

    Take a look at pic #3 in the background you can see where the guardrail is pushed out.
    Could this be the first point of impact?

    I think it started to smoke and the driver wanted out, crashing into the guardrail because they could not see through the smoke.


    This truck has a plow frame on it.
    This fire could have been caused by lousy wiring done by the owner.
    (a self installation?)

    What do you think Basher?

    ps it was just a ford.....:drinkup:

    it looks kinda like a power stoke which would make sense for the slow burn and it looks like a glow plug cord hangin on the tow hook?

    A good way to get rid of your truck and collect insurance.
