Relocating Evap Canister

Recently did a comp cut on my '03 TJ and had to deal with relocating the evap canister that is under the passenger rear corner. Typically I've seen people just swing the can into the tub opposite where it originally was or move it to the engine compartment.

My problem is 1) I cannot loose the rear seat due to bringing the kiddo's along with me, 2) I've moved the rear seat back 5" to give them a little more leg room, and 3) the engine compartment is pretty full as it is. I didn't want to have to run everything up to the engine and couldn't find a space for it up there anyhow.'s my solution...

In short, I put the charcoal canister behind the back seat, build a bracket with a cover, and put the rest of the filters higher up above where they originated.

Here's a few pics to detail it all.

Evap freshly pulled from the tub:

Evap taken apart to assess what to deal with:

A chunk of 18 gauge from Home Depot bent, drilled, and trimmed to house everything. The square cut is to allow two tubes to go to and from the canister behind the rear seat. The notch and trim across the top is to accommodate the angles and curves of the tub:

The two filters put onto the bracket:

The bracket put into place under the rear corner:

Canister with bracket to hold it in place:

Final bracket with a cover to help protect everything:

Am thinking of adding another cover bracket to help guard the exposed tubes.

We'll see how it runs when I finally get back to the trails.

looks great, if you are worried about the hoses just replace them with some steal braided ones.
