The only big current draw that would heat up a 4 gauge wire and melt the insulation would be the starter, but you replaced that...so now you say it just clicks? or does the wire still get hot? Could be the big current drain messed up the starter relay or solenoid, maybe time to get a good wiring schematic and start tracing wires. Does it have a winch? thats a big amp draw, and it could have a bad contactor or switch.....if you have one, that is.
