Eric of Skidrow Offroad wants me to come up to install the LCA & Canister Skids & take some pictures(the LCA Skid is for the last test fit)))...as soon as I can get the pictures & price of these items I'll post them. Also we're finishing up the Front Stubby Bumper with Winch Plate. Info for that should be coming real real soon.:D

I have the engine/tranny skid. I'm curious about the evap canister skid. Do you know if he's working on a transfer case skid ?

P.S. Saw a picture of your JK in a thread somewhere. Very nice rig.

I've been waiting for that evap skid to come out...seems like a simple proposition...what's taking so long?

what would you prefer relocating the canister or the skid? It's a dilema I'm working through.

Relocating it. I am going to do this, but worried about throwing a code, my dealer is such an A$$ I hesitate moving it.

I'll be there Saturday all day, installing Canister Skid, the LCA Skid is a final fit, & will be in production ASAP. As for the Transfer Case Skid, I'll mention this but he already had mine off & made drawings, so he's going to make one. Doing a lot of Stubby finalization to get it out there.
I'll try to post pictures of both Skids installed & get a ball park price on both.

Jim, mind if I ask where? The reason I'm asking is because I'll be in Central PA this weekend and would like to swing by and see this skid if it is not to far out of the way.

Is that evap skid a bolt on like the Rock Hard, and if so, what is the difference?

He's located close to Shermans Dale, Pa......pretty far out in the country. He's actually not open on Sat / Sun, that's why he can get me in there & get some serious R&D done. I don't see why he would have a problem with that, but I wouldn't no where his heads at on that one and wouldn't want to make that call. You could give him a call & mention the Canaster Skid and you would like to maybe shoot up there Saturday & take a look.
Ther're all great bunch a folks..

I moved the evap canister using the 4xFiX kit that Woods has produced. It was an easy install and I had no issues with any codes or whatnot. If I can do it, anyone can do it! :laughing:

OBTW - Didn't want to thread hijack. I'm interested in seeing the LCA skids when you can post them up. :)

I'm on the fence too... Looks like 4xfix.com (Wood's) relo kit is $100 now (same price as the RockHard skid), so I think I'll just skid mine. Anxious to see what the SkidRow version looks like :)

A few pic's of the Canister Skid,..defintely a tough little Skid. The front bracket is 1/4" due to the frontal impact area > 2nd pic down you can see it...(strength)
The "Lower Control Arm Skid" are great also, very easy install on both. Eric took pic's up there & will send them to me, & I'll post. He said both will be priced very competitively

I'm going to relocate because I don't need anymore weight on my jeep.

They look pretty tough...how do they compare with the RockHard evap skid...and are they a direct bolt on?

Hey Vet,...I've looked at Rockhard a few times, they would work just fine, but Eric's Beefy Front Bracket was well thought out covering any hard hits in frontal area. If you look closely, it's " M48 Tank" strong and looks a little tougher than Rockhard. Yes a direct bolt on, even I could do it very easily.
Should be priced very close to Rockhard.

I moved mine using Woods' kit. Piece of cake install and no codes. It is now way up against the tub and out of harms way.

I agree with relocating the EVAP, already did mine.


Curious to see these LCA skids though. Is there a link or some pics?

Tough call...both look equally tough...but just looking at the pics as a reference, I get the feeling the Skidrow is "beefier"...besides, I like the :rainbow:tutty fruity:rainbow: front skid they make, so I'm a bit prejudiced...:D

Yes a little beefier, Eric uses 2 gusset's on each side of the front bracket instead of 1 in the middle & uses his ramp approach on the bottom of the Skid like on his Engine Skid.(it's a miniature Engine Skid)
Pricing is being worked out more or less this week.

well id have to say i like it. wish i saw it a month ago before i moved mine, i threw codes when i moved mine, BUT i have been having problems with that since the day i got the jeep. im just gonna silicone the crap out of the connectors and you can re-set the code with a standard OBDII scanner.

What code is getting kicked off? You can reset the gas cap warning (technically not a code) by disconnecting the battery also.

The Woods evap relocation kit is the way to go, IMHO, because you can relocate the muffler to that area AND make room for an on-broad air system...*handy to have*

Kit's $55 plus shipping. The prices on 4xfix.com are now all suggested retail and there is no way to buy from that site anymore. All forum members should now use www.JeepSWAG.com . JeepSWAG now has all of the forum members pricing.
