Like the title says looking for opinions on the best Evap Relo kit I don't think I want to do armor.

Why not just armor it..... I think cost will be close to a relo kit. Only drawback I can think of is you can't get a bigger muffler in there..... but, I found a glass pack to be perfect.

i didnt know there was anyonter than the woods/jeepswag one. i have it on my current unlimted and my old 2 door
Yup I got the Woods relo and it works as advertised. Sure you can make your own for cheaper but if you just want the convience of a kit I recommend Woods kit since I have it and like. In my opinion there is no need to pay more for a kit with a skid plate up there covering it in a relocated position due to the axle protecting it. As far as armoring it in the factory location I say just move it and be done with it and free up that space for ground clearance and a future relocated exhaust.

In Calif, one wouldn't pass smog with it removed. Not sure about other states, but you could be on to something.... on the Harley, guys take it off for performance gains. May work that way for us?
If this is the same configuration used on motorcycles, why not remove the evap canister all together? Just plug the vacuum line and tie off the overflow line. Done.

"EVAP" redirects here. EVAP may also refer to Evaporation.

Evaporative emissions are the result of gasoline vapors escaping from the vehicle's fuel system. Since 1971, all U.S. vehicles have had fully sealed fuel systems that do not vent directly to the atmosphere; mandates for systems of this type appeared contemporaneously in other jurisdictions. In a typical system, vapors from the fuel tank and carburetor bowl vent (on carbureted vehicles) are ducted to canisters containing activated carbon. The vapors are adsorbed within the canister, and during certain engine operational modes fresh air is drawn through the canister, pulling the vapor into the engine,where it burns. Per Wikipedia

If your in a state or county that does smog checks you will fail. If not you can attempt a delete but you may get a check engine light.

Got the woods setup, good kit and directions make it easy. I would recommend it. Skidding it is even easier though..

you would get a check engine and gas cap light if you remove it (a rock removed the one on my 2 door) if a legit place inspects your jeep (if you have inspections) it shouldnt pass with any warning lights on.

Yes. I don't know about performance gains on a Harley :thefinger:, but it does clean up the look and certainly hasn't detracted from my bikes performance. You will probably throw a check engine light if you don't plug the vacuum line, but other than that you should be good to do. If your state does emissions inspections... :thefinger:

Perfect. So unless your state does inspections, pull the bitch off and plug the vacuum line. First person to make a bong out of the evap canister wins.
