Does anyone have any information or facts as to why my 2018 Jeep Sahara would burn up in flames , Mods 3 inc lift, 35 inch nitto tires brand new as of this July. Front Bumper , winch, 50 inch light bar all older mods with no problems. Drove tru some floods on September 2 in NJ water about middle of rims for the most part slow 5 miles per hour nothing I have not done since I bought it new in 2018. Jeep drove fine been to dealer 1 time for service about 1.5 years ago vacuum line got pinched they rerouted it and everything was fine 36,000 miles oil changed very 5 thousand miles with royal purple oil and gear lube. Well maintained by me all work done by me including electric. Im am sick I loved my Jeep and enjoyed it soft top, hard top. Parked it in my driveway and went to bed and about 1 hr later fire dept in front of house putting out jeep.

Hard to say without seeing the aftermath. If you parked it and it burned about an hour later, it’s practically guaranteed to be electrical related.

Former cop here: Are you cool with all your neighbors?
yes I have cameras on my house, motion activated they go off if a squirrel enters my driveway and they went off when the fire dept walked towards my jeep about 20 feet away
