Where is the gas tank located on the 11' GC

Read some reports on the fire hazards of the gas tank on 93-04 Grand Cherokee. Apparently it was not good that the gas tank's position was below the rear bumper and behind the rear axle. So where is the gas tank on the 2011 GC at? If I add the off-road adventure II package, will there be a skid plate covering the gas tank?

It's underneath.

Seriously, it's just in front of the rear axle, mostly on the driver's side. There is indeed a gas tank skid plate; I added the plates after purchase, and there's a special one for that area- it's big, heavy, and the reason you probably don't want to put the plates on by yourself.

Never had a fuel tank issue with my 96 GC and it's really been off road with out any special tweaks.

If I am not mistaken the fuel tank on the WJ's were in the same place. It just surrounded the spare tire that was in the cargo area.
