Apparently this isn't a new issue (I didn't know this before), and dates back even to 2010, and some documents even back to the 1980s (after the Pinto incident)

And apparently Jeep moved the gas tank location in 2005 for the Grand Cherokee and there hasn't been any fire-related rear-end collision deaths since (as opposed to 50+ prior)
