Re: The perfect hot topic


When I managed to get onto the Porch day before yesterday, the photos wouldn't [sign in to see URL] did today! HOW SCAREY!!!

I am SO relieved that you and Frog are OK, but I am extremely sorry that you lost so much that you couldn't retrieve before the Jeep became totally involved.
I've read in another thread that you got your older Jeep there now and it's doing a wonderful job for you. Of that I am glad!
Still no idea of what caused the fire?

Insurance companies can be such pains in the ass. I've been blessed to not have to call in a claim in a very long time. I carry full coverage on my GMC Jimmy because we are still paying on it. I recently put the truck that belonged to my Dad on my insurance, but only did liability on it. After seeing this, I'm not sure I want just liability on my vehicles!!! WOW!
I hope the insurance company stops yanking you around and does their job properly and without much fuss. Have you done any research to see if there was a recall of any kind on that particular vehicle? If so, you may have a way to get your deductible paid and it not come from your pocket.

Re: The perfect hot topic


Because of the location, speed and timing, we were never in any danger, but circumstances could have been much worse.

The cause as far can be ascertained, might have been (don't you just love indirect answers) "caused by a known defect in the braking system, that allowed brake fluid from a chaffed or frayed brake line, come into contact with a very hot catalytic converter, made hotter by an over lean ignition fault in the computer. This caused the plastics on the firewall and inner fenders to ignite rapidly, making possible extinguishing by small appliance unlikely."

That sounds logical, so maybe it is true, but I wish someone would say they don't know, not that it may have been caused by this. Maybe it was, maybe something else - all I am 100% certain of, is that nothing I did, or did not do, contributed to the fire. At least the loan has been paid off, and we just wait for the contents settlement. Crazy isn't it, they pay off $31,560 without a qualm, but balk over a five or six thousand bill for contents.

Oh, nice explanation... emoticon

Well the $31,560 for the vehicle is already in the bluebook or their rules...
Your personal contents they have to verify probably needs to go before some board or what not... emoticon

Re: The perfect hot topic


Yup, that is probably true..

Today, being payday, we get to do the maintenance on the TJ Jeep, that is sorely needed. New tires, @ $220 each - four of them, new shocks, all went in the last two days, in the desert - it is rough out there because a couple living south of the butte have a two wheel drive hearse they drive on a jeep road - it makes a heck of a mess on it, ridging it into washboard, and churning up huge dips in it. Why the heck would someone buy a forty acre parcel of desert, with only a hearse and small front wheel drive sedan. The very nature of Jeep Trails require four wheel drive, high clearance vehicles. We need to find another route they don't use, I don't like being bounced and vibrated on a sand road.

Oh [sign in to see URL] love auto tech speak! LOL.

I agree with Queeny on them probably having to look up pricing and what-not on the personal items. Be prepared to wait a bit for that check! At least they are paying the bulk, so that should help some.
Hooray for new tires and shocks! Hopefully you can find another way so you don't have to buy more new tires and shocks anytime soon! Don't blame ya for not wanting to bum along the road. As for those with the hearse and front wheel drive sedan, they sound like wanna-be's! Hopefully they'll move on and leave the Jeep trails for those with the proper vehicles to drive on.

They are actually really nice people, just with no idea at all about desert living. We will either help them out, or they will figure it out themselves.

I'm sure all will work out just as it should.
Hopefully sooner, rather than later!!

Re: The perfect hot topic


The claim is in something called 'Estimation' Where they decide that they don't want to pay what things cost, but what things would cost if they had their way. I do not doubt that our $4500 - $6000 claim will turn out to be something like $2000.. So I will have to eat the other two or three thousand bucks.

But, the TJ, Jeepy, got new shocks and now drives like a demented Cadillac.. We were all over today, finding our selves on a very little used road, that climbed over the Krug hills, through sand dunes, and past the dry Lay Waterhole. Jeepy did really well, didn't clunk or bounce at all. Shocks are good things to buy new from time to time. I will not leave it another five years before I replace them again.

Re: The perfect hot topic


Having got used to a 2010 JK jeep for the last six months, I was becoming accustomed to the failure rate of progress. Getting Jeepy back again is eye opening - a complete generation of new Jeepers have no idea their machine is way worse than the one it replaced. They all think they have a wonderful vehicle that performs great - I know different, and have the TJ to prove it. emoticon - I am trying really hard not to go to the JK forum, that I joined when I bought the JK, and telling them my old noisy TJ is a much better jeep... Ain't I bad...
