EVAP Canister.....

I知 laying out plans for stage 2 of my build, and I知 curious.


Move it, or put a skid over it?

I知 leaning towards moving it, seems effective and the most cost conscious.

What did you do if anything, any Pros vs Cons?

Edit:
If you moved yours, did you purchase a kit?
If so, what kit, and was it worth it?
Would you go a different route if you had a 電o over?

I moved mine to over the rear pumpkin. It makes a ton more snes there. I used the Metalcloak kit for it. For what it cost me, I couldn稚 fabricate something nearly as nice, so yes, worth it.

Funny, I知 a Metalcloak fanboy and was looking at their skid.
I missed their relocation kit, not even sure how that happened.
I値l look into it.
Thanx.

I ran a skid for a few years, then relocated (no kit). I would definitely relocate instead of adding a skid.

relocated mine about 8 years ago with no kit. Just used the stock mounting bracket and tweaked it a little bit and about 15 bucks in hoses and connectors.

I went with the PureJeep evap relocate because its design also functions as a skid. The general design was previously sold under Kilby Enterprises. I haven't installed yet but it looks stout.

i have a brand new Jeep SWAG sourced ,Dominion Offroad evap relocation kit I never used , still in box.
I will sell ya for super cheap (+ your shipping cost from Nashville);still in box.



Reason I never used it /relocated is due to my having my self-spotting camera as-well-as the electric OX locker solenoid up& in the space above the rear differential . Thus, I opted to go with the 4lb ,aluminum Rockhard 4x4 skid for the canister.



PM me if you are interested. I am not looking to make money out of it or anything; just not gonna use it & it is among the tons of crap I have been intending to post on here for sale.

I've done both. Originally relocated using a Kilby kit - worked fine. When I 3 linked the rear, I moved back to OEM position and used a PS skid. have a light contact scratch on skid and works fine. if you rock crawl, I see no reason not to relocate t if you are comfortable doing such mods. That said, I'd like to see pictures of the predicament one got themselves into where a quality OEM position EVAP skid failed them.

So did anyone that did the relocate without a kit not flip the NVLD switch and set a code?

I can稚 reply but seeing as how I知 leaning toward relocating mine, could you explain what you池e talking about with details?

Sounds like something I壇 like to avoid, or at least know more about.

Thanx

Relocating seems to be the best way to go. Plenty have done it without any problems.

That ^^^ post-padding thread bump brought this to my attention, so let's add some fookin' tech
EDIT: not ripping on jk_southwest - it's because of JKO's new-ish "need x number of posts to see stuff" rule

I believe the NVL . . . . . . GBT? switch is the white plastic thingamachingus in the middle of this photo:



I think I remember that you can just pop it out and twist it 180 degrees, but I could be dead wrong on that

USMC, on yours and mine I think it's a non-issue since we didn't buy a kit with a plate that remounts the evap. can upside-down.
(because men with tools and > 4th grade fab. skills )

Here's a thread with pics that fotosukit didn't wreck: Holy Shit! - Search is My Friend

. . . and that's where I saw that our evap's have the same cheapass ~foolproof solution, which I think doesn't flip the can:

some relo kit instructions have you cut a bit of the tube around white parts collar but I took a few seconds of heatgun and gooseneck channellocks and baby- twisted the hose off easily.

I dunno if it痴 correct but I壇 imagine that white part has a valve in it for the fuel vapor to enter and not be able to exit; flipping it probably forces it open or shut easier in that position and might be why relo ( as Gunny ,Ex & others have done) w/out inversion mounting it maybe why it doesn稚 throw wacked codes?


Listen to the guy with a skid on it chime in , heh. (Fwiw, I致e taken my evap off , before skidding it ...)
