This was Dennis Pollizotto’s ’86 Jeep CJ-7. Well, the aftermath of high heat on Dennis Pollizotto’s ’86 Jeep CJ-7. The fuel hose connecting the main fuel line to the fuel pump “decided to spring a leak and shoot gas onto the hot block.” Next? The Jeep was engulfed in flames, “which soared higher than the factory rollbar by 2 feet in about 20 seconds.” The warning signs happened fast too. Dennis said he first smelled gas, watched his fuel gauge drop significantly, and then saw fire come through the sidewall where the heat hoses entered. The rebuild had begun not long after this photo was taken.
