2012 Rubi Evap Skid?

I was performing my first oil/filter change just now on my 2012 Rubicon (at 550 miles) and I noticed what appears to be a skid plate on my evap canister.

First of all, is this even the evap canister above the plate the arrow is pointing at and second, is that even a skid plate?


I was scoping it out to see if the Poison Spyder skid looked like it would fit and it looks like there is already one there from the factory. I will admit I am a bit of a newb with regards to the new Wrangler though so I am quite possibly wrong.

I recall seeing pictures before of the evap can and I do not recall seeing a steel plate underneath. Is this perhaps a change from 2011 to 2012 or could it just be a model difference between the Rubi vs. others or am I just a tard?

It does look like a skid. And that is the evap from what I can see. I did not know the 12's come protected, news to me.
I've seen talk of evap skids for the 12. Is it adequate protection?

It looks a bit thin to me but I suppose it is better than nothing. I wonder if that is something they started putting on mid production for the 2012's? I can't be sure but I thought the pictures I was looking at before were 2012's and they did not come with a skid.

Any other 2012 owners want to chime in if yours has one or not?

Just checked mine...2012 JKU...has a skid just like yours. Which is news to me; I'm pretty sure earlier models were unprotected. I've got an evap skid on my list of mods.

Just crossed it off.

Not sure how sturdy it is. FEELS pretty solid, though. It'll definitely serve my purposes, for now.

Can probably search Craiglist at some point for one cheap. Once newer 12 owners realize they have one and upgrade to aftermarket.

FYI - there are threads where people lifted their 2012s and the rear driveshaft sometimes hits the new Evap skid.

LOL! You guys didn't know they started adding skids to the Evap? It's kinda thin, like the gas tank skid. I you do serious rocking you may want to add a more robust skid to both the gas tank and the Evap. I just added a Mopar/Rugged Ridge skid to my 2010.

It nice that it only took 5 years to address a problem, huh?

Looking the picture, what did the put in place of the muffler since they put the muffler next to the Evap canister (kinda worries me since the Evap can is plastic)

At the risk of hi-jacking (pun intended) this thread, that is a SWEET looking Jeep. I like the color with the black wheels.
