Hey a'll, It's one of my first posts up here and although I've been hanging around this place longer than I've had my JK. I've held back from contributing untill I've had something decent to share. So here it is, my review of the Nemesis Industries fuel canister Evap Relocation kit. The Evap canister relocation bracket is an short an easy installation that would make a good weekend project. Its an inexpensive kit that moves that bulky, poorly located Evap Canister out of harms way. Enjoy
Recently, we got to thinking about protecting some of the components quite literally just hanging around under the chassis of our JK. Besides the obvious oil pan and transmission skids which are needed because these items can’t be moved, we wondered what would be a good solution that would suit our needs for the fuel evap canister that just sits there about mid span down the chassis. After searching for some time and looking at all the skid plates that were available for the evap canister, we discovered that Nemesis Industries were working on a new JK Evap relocation kit. This new kit is really well priced and suited for all model JK’s from 2007 – 2013 and comes with everything required to move the canister from its factory position to above the rear axle.
So after a quick phone call to Nemesis and talking it through with the team, it was decided that it would be worth sending one down under for installation onto a RHD JK.
A week later we had this in our possession ready for and install into our JK
On with the install.
First it helps to jack up the rear of your JK and secure it on proper car stands and choke the front wheels. (Do not just climb under your JK with it supported by just a car jack !
We will be removing the fuel evap canister which sits here under the flimsy skid
and relocating it to a new safe location here
Start by marking all the pipes so you know where to reconnect them later on
Carefully disconnect the fuel breather lines paying particular attention to the clips that hold the lines in place.
Once all your lines are free and out of the way, undo the three bolts that hold the Evap skid to the chassis and carefully lower the Evap canister and skid out of the way
This is the space you will be left with
Complete Evap assembly removed from the vehicle
Give it a bit of a clean if you want making sure not to get any water into the vent holes
Then following the instructions mount in the new Nemesis Industries Evap relocation mount
You’ll need to drill one 7/16th hole up through the left hand factory hole on the chassis. Please wear your safety glasses for this and make sure the wires are clear before you drill, then hit it with paint to protect any exposed metal
If still connected you will need to release your e-brake cable and remove the hangers
Then carefully move over the rear of the axle and up into position the Evap canister on the Nemesis Industries mount and install the two bolts. Do not tighten fully just yet and if doing this bit by yourself it may help to have a clamp handy to hold the mount while you set the bolts.
