2017 F150 After Front End Collision

I was browsing on the 2015+ F150 Forum and ran across this post by a member FORCED on August 1, 2017. I found it to be scary and amazing at the same time. The good part of this is, according to the OP, no-one was hurt in the crash.

I am quoting the OP below:

"The short story:

I bought a Race Red 2017 SuperCrew FX4 with a 3.5EB at the end of May. Fast forward two months to Saturday, July 29th. I hit a car in front of me at a speed of 30-40 mph. The front airbags deployed. I moved to the side of the road. Within 2 minutes the truck was on fire. It started at the bottom of the driver side B pillar. Between the initial collision when the truck dialed 911 to the time it was fully engulfed had to be less than 10 minutes. Melted it down. It was something to hear the tires, shocks, windows, and whatever else popping in the fire. I am waiting on my insurance to give me a replacement value. Funny thing is they said they wouldn't be going to Ford. Possibly a seat belt pretensioner issue? That seems to be the consensus so far."

Maybe he accidentally bought a Fire Red edition....


Fires happen during accidents sometimes. Just the aluminum trucks burn up completely instead of just charring/melting.

There is no such thing. The military will use many many grades of materials depending on the purpose. I use 2XXX - 7xxx Aluminum all the time. Some of it is sent out for special treatments before I even get it. Same for stainless, steel, Ti, bronze, etc....

Just another bullshit term used to give people a warm fuzzy.

That's what it looks like under the raised white lettering when the top layer of black bakes off.....

I'm gonna guess that is caused by the raised white letter Goodyear Wrangler sidewalls after the black rubber around the raised letters were, in this case, burned away. Many moons ago I had some raised white letter sidewall tires that my ex-wife scrubbed pretty badly on a curb that made those tires look like that when she was done. I was pretty pissed about that then.
