HOUND So, removing that plate reveiled an even larger space. The frame apparently makes its own pocket for my compressor and a few other items. I think with a tool roll bag, everything but my jumper cables should fit there nicely.

Provided that there isn't any real reason NOT to use that space, a velcro strap or 2 will help tie down my torque wrench nicely to keep it from rattling, and a few eye bolts to replace the bolts that held the plate down will allow me to secure things nicely I think

Will be posting pics when this project is ready.

The canister is part of the emission system. It's purpose is the take the gas fumes from the tank and feed them to the engine on start up.

In the newer wranglers it was moved to behind the passenger tail light, to free up space for the abs system

$350 for 2 u-joints???? $129 for a shovel? If I paid $350 for u-joints, I better not ever need a $129 shovel!!!

It is for emissions. Remove it and you will see the check engine light all the time, and have problems all the time.

the big black box in my pictures where the round thing connects is there instead, why do i have this box and the OP does not.

Your round thing is for cruise control. Your square box is the charcoal canister, same thing as mine that is round. I have no cruise. The OP must have the charcoal canister in another spot.

I took a look at those, and they seem a bit small. I'd like to store a small compressor (since I don't have on board air yet), jumper cables, a torque wrench, and some other mis sockets and such.

I'm debating removing that plate and moutning something longer/deeper in it's place. There seems to be a lot of space below it, should be put to good use

Too bad you have to get to 88mph to use it, 'cause you know that won't happen!

Plowboy1970 Yep, for the ABS stuff.

UnlimitedLJ04 it was for the optional flux capacitor.



but seriously, it was the ABS module on LHD models and the battery tray for RHD models.
