So today I went into a store to buy a frame for a picture today. I was in the store for maybee 20 minuites and a guy comes in and asks if someone owns a silver ford. I asked the one with stacks? He said yes. I said whats up ??? He says I'TS ON FIRE!!!!!!!!! So I get the police, fire dept and we get the fire out. The fire marshal says it looks like the wiring harness under my drivers seat shorted out and started the fire. Bummer I love that truck. Well see what the insurance company does. I guess I'm lookin for a new powerstroke. I dont have pics yet. I had it towed to my local ford dealership. I will post pics when I can. Nobody got hurt, my wife and I were in the store. Has anyone heard of this wiring harness being recalled:dunno: any insight woud be appreciated.

Thanks for the support john gonna wait to see what the insurance company does first. Too bad I need a dually for work or I would take your truck off your hands for ya. But it will definetly be another dually
