Ya. Not that common. I had something similar happen to me on my 97 Dodge Ram. 80 MPH the thing loses ignition, apparently dumps a few gallons of gas down the exhaust, rights itself, and completely melts my catalytic converter.

Turns out the after market performance computer had an issue. Returned it, replaced it with another unit (same company) and it ne'er happened again. $200 for new cat and installation.

Yeah, years ago guys would switch off their ignitions in tunnels, then back on to create a loud bang. Every once in a while it would blow up the mufflers.

I just got my second yj. It is the rarest YJ ever. All four gauges and the clock work perfectly.

Or if your drums were seized on so you replace the whole axle with a 8.8.
