Question Rubicon electric sway bar Mods

Someone told me that I can swicht the module of the electric sway bar from under to the top of the bar so it will not exceed under the front bumper.

They also told me that it's possible to move the evap canister over the rear diff?????? Can someone told me if it's really possible and how to do it???

thanks in advance

There is a kit for the evap can
As far as the sway bar I have heard you can "clock it" meaning you take the ends out and reposition it.
I personally would not do that. I have a skid plate to protect it.
If you clock it and it goes bad and you take it in for warranty they will probably deny warranty repair to the sway bar.
Besides at $2000 do you want to chance it?
Skid plate IMO is the best bet.
I am sure you will hear different from others.

also you cant rotate or "clock" it if you have a bumper with a recessed winch mount.
I added a rugged ridge skid plate instead - cheap insurance!

As for the evap can, several kits available to relocate it, several skidplates for it too.
Woods has a relocation kit at 4xfix.com and benchmark makes a skid

x2 on the don't chance it. Our experience has been that the '07's were the most prone to water and dust problems--we actually had engine fires on early models. The 08's are more likely to have internal fork difficulty. Jury is still out on 09's. Your best bet is to get protection, keep it clean, and scream like heck for warranty if it does go out. Once we learned to protect them from rock rash, we only have occasional "environmental" issues with them.
