X2 or arson.

Sorry to hear about your jeep. Glad no one was hurt. I hope they find the problem and that your insurance will cover your loss if Chrsyler doesn't.

All using the same pic is my guess.

OK, I retract my "owned" post.

ETA: Do give your mutual friend a heads up to tell SippiTJ if you're not gonna call it like you see it, at least don't make it sound like this happened in Amsterdam for the excitement or...

So how long has it been, he might know you better than you think?



Kidding, relax.

I would say that from the original description of the burn pattern, no engine damage and minor under carrage damage that this would either be electrical or intentionally set.

x3 on electrical or arson. Especially with the alarm going off comment. Owner, very sorry for your loss, but very thankful that you and your family are safe. Sounds like a 2012 is in your future.

And FYI - Its been a LONG time since this chick has been in a hotel on a Tuesday morning....
Glad it was not in your garage! Your whole house could have gone up in flames!
