I took my beloved Gladiator into the dealer to have the start-stop feature fixed. The dealer said that the issue was that both batteries tested bad. They replaced both and kept it overnight. I picked it up the next day and on the way home all hell happened!

Good grief. Looks like no one hurt. Sorry about your truck. Guarantee some idiot tech shorted wires somewhere. Terrifying to take a Jeep in for warranty.
I'm thinking thats what may have happened.

Holy shit! Sorry to see this- everyone is safe, I hope? Will be curious to hear the source of the fire.

You seem quite calm for someone that obviously put some love into your build! I can’t imagine how pissed I would be…

What a bummer. Glad all were safe, Really hope the insurance you have will cover all of your Mod's. I don't think mine would.... That is so tough, glad all were safe and the jeep didn't start a wild fire or something crazy.

Man that stinks I am sorry to see this. Glad you are OK.

I am going with them cutting the winch wiring and causing a short. Was it shielded?
