Maybe odd for it to burn like that specifically, but not incredibly odd for them to burn... I know a few that have been lost like that

One started burning it's own oil and somehow caught fire, the other ignited while the family was inside a store.

They can burn from a leaky fuel line. Spill rail is one place that tends to leak more often.

looks like it started around the turbo based on the hole in the bonnet. I'm guessing oil feed line to turbo split and sprayed onto the exhaust.

I went to look at it yesterday, looked like it was* a nice truck. A friend of mine responded to the fire call. The starter was shorted to ground rolling the truck in gear on fire in a parking lot in Kittery. I think the truck came from CA.

Ehhh...either a very odd coincidence, or you're referring to Frank's(who is on here) truck that burnt at the kittery trading post?

Wow, that's a freak accident! Silver painting a regular chassis to look gavi is beyond fake to me. that's like a 90 year old wearing lipstick and a padded bra.
