looks like a 1%er build, probably insured out the ass and the guy profited and came out very much on top.

The guy was more concerned about getting his pregnant wife and son out of the rig, and it was too much by the time they got back to the fire.

Good to hear the family got out safe! I think we all take our safety for granted when wheeling, even some place safe like the dunes but anything can go wrong. This guy had his priorities straight getting his family out. Fires spread way to quick especially with the fluids in our trucks.

Do you think the fuel cell was inside ? It seems too hot inside for just the seats burning ?

I don't think so. If you're talking about the spot just past entrance, it was there when we came in earlier Saturday.

Graves is a K5 Blazer.

I wonder if the trans puked on the Exhaust? I've seen that scenario claim more than 1 rig. They go up quick and there's nothing a few little on-board fire extinguishers will do once that starts.
