Another burned JK

Not sure who this belongs to but the wrecking yard I use on a regular basis knowing I have a Jk called me to let me know he just got it in.

I don't know the story but it looks like another one that started in the dash IMO

Wrecking yard... so, insurance "totaled" it?

Are you sure the dash was the culprit? I know the little auto transmission fire problem starts under the front dash area and comes right up. Only difference in that fire usually burns the whole JK to the ground.

I'm seeing a lug nut and front plastic grill remnants... scorched hood... this JK did burn up completely didn't? Engine and at least one tire.... damn.

Jeff, I really don't know I am just speculating that it started at the bottom of the center console dash. looks like it's only on the inside and seems to be more on the passengers side. but that's just my opinion. I really know as much as what I see in the photos that were sent to me.

EDIT: Good observation on the exterior. I'll ask for more pics.

Ah... sorry I thought you took the photos. I think that's the evap canister on the driver seat... and there is definitely a front grill, a fender insert, and lug nuts... I think there's a lot more damage to it than what they sent to you.

Sucks for the owner. Hope everyone got out...

Im thinking of replacing my center console....
think that one will fit?

Yes, but there's just something about him. Something around the eyes, I don't know, reminds me of... me. No. I'm sure of it, I hate him.
