Fiat-Chrysler Jeep/Ram buy-back

The Italian-American automaker also faces a record civil fine of up to $105 million. In addition, owners of more than a million older Jeeps with vulnerable rear-mounted gas tanks will be able to trade them in or be paid by Chrysler to have the vehicles repaired...

The older Jeeps have fuel tanks located behind the rear axle, with little to shield them in a rear crash. They can rupture and spill gasoline, causing a fire. At least 75 people have died in crash-related fires, although Fiat Chrysler maintains they are as safe as comparable vehicles from the same era.

The article doesn't go into a lot of detail regarding the Jeep part of this recall, but it sounds like TJs. Does anyone have more info? My gas tank skid is not well.

It's 93-98 Grand Cherokees. This may apply to some of the members here.
