I was going to delete the cannister but read that the computer wont forgive you. Then I was going to relocate it, but I read various times that changing its elevation & distance jacks up things as well. Could be hogwash that's for sure.

Thanks for the complment though!!!

Sorry, no pics of it installed.
Very nice!! I'll get the jeep out today & hopefully the flash wont go off so I can get an installed pic.
Thanks for sharing. I wish we could just delet the cannister alltogether.

Ya, we hope you make the trip too. Should be a blast. Jeff & Julie are real good about spotting & choosing good trails & good lines & avoiding damage. Jeff is real good about hiking back down the trail to make sure everyone makes it.

I also dented my tail pipe & drug my arse pretty good, scuffing up my rear bumper while following her.

Perhaps that is a disclaimer in her signature, lol.

DIY Evap Skid

I decided to build my own Evap skid. It's certainly different from all the ones I've seen & I think it's actually stronger than most. I tried to take a pic of it installed but due to the shiney paint it didn't show up at all.
Next time I go out & straddle a huge crack I'll snap a pic & post it.

I started with a piece of 3/16th inch steel plate, 10" x 26". I had to trim it a bit so it wouldn't interfere with the transfer case.

I drilled two 1/2" holes in the transfer case skid, just in front of the cross member. I then drilled two corresponding holes in the Evap Skid & bolted it to the TC skid. Two huge washers were intalled to clamp down on this cross member. This prevents the skid from moving forwards or backwards.

On the other end of the skid I fabricated two brackets that bolt to the framwork of the Jeep, using existing bolts.

Metal strap was welded to the edges of the skid for rigidness & side impact resistance.
