If you look closely only the front is white. It's still red where the cage attaches.

I assume the heat turned it white.

I don't see any gold on that 110... Think any blue/orange 4wd rigs come in the Rhino-lined Jeep on 20" XD's variety

You can actually see that the Headlamp Panel Nose (where the headlight surround rests) is also white(ish)....I was assuming that the heat from the engine bay literally melted the paint right off. Door tops same thing....with these places they are directly exposed to the heat, i.e. no "interior door panels" or anything else to give a buffer or layer of protection from the flames/heat/etc.

Looks like the same truck but without safari chiming in we are just speculating on what was done by them. We all know these out of country restores are trash. I wonder how much safari was trying to make correct. Hopefully he didn't touch it mechanically.

I'm all for calling this thing disgusting looking but saying someone is committing insurance fraud borders on slander.

I edited my post. It was a joke in poor taste. There is zero evidence of that.

First, and most importantly, the owner of the vehicle is OK and has since returned to his home outside the State of Florida. I've also been informed that we may expect for the vehicle's remains to be removed from the accident scene sometime today.

The unfortunate incident in-question happened on Saturday evening, sometime around 5:30PM. There were witnesses, including one passerby who stopped and came to the owner's aid with two fire extinguishers which he luckily happened to be carrying with him in his own vehicle at the time. Despite their best efforts though, they were unable to fully extinguish the fire, which ultimately overtook the vehicle.

The cause of the fire is currently unknown and, as such, the incident will require further investigation. In the interim I would kindly ask that everyone be respectful and please refrain from publicly making any speculative or outlandish comments which are unsupported by fact. I respectfully make this request on behalf of those who are directly involved in this matter.

Thank you.

Will is on the case! Please refrain from speculating on a free message board until he and Elizabeth Shue run their forensic tests.

And don't worry, if they can't solve it, I'm sure Ben can.

Wow, sorry to hear about this. I didn't realize diesels even have the potential to burn like this.
