I'm trying to figure out what type of fire extinguisher i should run, and found a really good article on pirate4x4 in case anybody else wants some info.

It was a little too hot to grab the fire extinguisher from between the seats! Lol. This really sucks! Thanks for all the kind words. It's going to be a while before I can get back in the game. Going to need some time to recover from the loss. I did have a great time at the party. The pig was delicious. Had a blast tearing up the pile of wood chips. Thanks again scott and heather. Ps. sorry you didn't get one last ride.

That sucks so bad. Not that it means anything at all, but the damage isn't as bad as I expected. Still fucked, but nice to see that the expensive parts appear to have survived unscathed.

Jamming hard on wet cell batteries can cause catastrophe. Lead plates have a habit of bouncing out of where they belong, and shorting out inside. An Optima Yellow top would probably have saved his rig.

The burn didn't look that bad, all the major components are still there and good, just needs new wires and hoses, and a pair of seats. Already got a fire extinguisher. Nothing got hot enough to make the tubing brittle, just replace the plastic intake manifold.

A completly melted one is available for use- Someone left it at Scotts next to a pile of pallets and a grassfire.

Great party again, Scott and Heather! Thanks again for everything! Mr. Green, FANTASTIC work on the pig!

Sorry about the rig, Nate. Thankfully, no one got hurt, and bigger, better, stronger. Definitely was a blast watching it run around during the day! Best guess was it started in the dash. :-(

A poker/cigar party in my barn was brought up by Sethward himself, but there's only a 1.31234% chance there will be power out there in the next 4 weeks. Save for a generator
