cj7 did a smoke check yesterday

Went out to start my 7 and smoke came boiling from under hood. Burned out a ground wire an popped the fuse. Changed the ground wire and fuse. Got out the old meter, had power every where it should be. To make a long story short the starter had a dead short in it. Changed it out and now good to go.
