The big thing that makes me think the Jeep can be rebuilt is what I don't see......I don't see the typical fire results of flat melted tires, warped sheet metal, buckled fenders, headlights popped out. It doesn't make sense as the adjusting screws go into a plastic tab that should have melted. The WS glass is gone and the interior is toast, but there is rubber lines here and there, etc. Kinda weird. I got a Scrambler that had an engine fire that warped the front of the tub so bad that I just threw away all the sheet metal from under the doors forward. It was just too wavy to fix....or try to. My engine was way more melted than yours and I was able to save it with a basic clean and rebuild. I replaced all the outer components and it ran great. I see your frame down as very salvageable and even the sheet metal has promise. Every part will have to be removed, condition evaluated, cleaned, etc. With the support here and the determination on your end, you and Jack will be Jeepn again better than ever.

Subscribed, this will be the most epic built thread yet, Your not just out to blow money on a jeep, but to recover and heal from a loss. I am excited for you, and the end result.

I have a feeling after you get the surface muck off the jeep, there will be a solid start there already.

We are all behind you on this one!

Well i am subscribed! I think this will be an awesome thread to follow. I also believe that the healing that will come with it will be an awesome share with you and all of us that follow along. I will be awaiting all of the updates and PICTURES with the feelings of a child on Christmas morning looking at the presents under the tree.

I have had nightmares about this... well 2 types of nightmares... first the Jeep burning and then second, going down a big hill and my brakes not working... but that is not what you are going through right now, just the first part.

Not sure how your front/rear rims held up... if you are in need of matching ones, I have a set of 4 that I am using as rollers currently on my Scrambler project. If I can get replacement rollers and swap the rubber, you can have the ones you need (if you do) to help the flame phooenix project from the "ground up"...

Good luck and keep the gallows humor coming...love it!

hard to see them, but all 4 match...

I need to check in more often than once a month! Wow. I only have about 5 minutes to cruise around, but I wasn't expecting this. Glad you and Jack and Mrs. 'Knot (if there is one) are OK. I'll be back in another month. Geez.

glad to see you're back at it. Lots of us have spare parts hanging around and I for one, and i'm sure others, would be happy to help you in any way possible. Same with tools, special ones especially (if that makes sense) even if it's just a loan & could be mailed/shipped. Let us know what could help you.

Cute dog, but he's not pulling the Jeep is he?

I'd rather be lost on the trails than found at home!

Wow. Thanks. I need one for sure but I'm in no hurry. She's not going anywhere soon. Just knowing that one is out there is cool. Thanks.
