CLEARLY a spare tire was put on it after the accident..(don't know why) ...

..and just because the back hatch isn't smashed in doesn't mean a car didn't go under the bumper and crush/impact the gas tank...which is more than likely what happened.

I differ with your view...the differential would NOT have punctured it in this one...

What vehicle? A corvette would have a hard time hitting the gas tank on a stock KJ.If you look in the pic the rear bumper support is perfectly untouched,no rear end impact at all,the tail pipe is still untouched as well.
