The plastic evaporative canister located under the Jeep floorboard is an important part of the Jeeps emissions and engine management system. Unfortunately, Jeep placed this unit in a vulnerable spot where it can be damaged or torn off by rocks and other trail obstacles. Poison Spyders Evap Skid solves this issue by protecting the canister with a rugged skid plate. The Poison Spyder Evap Skid is CNC laser cut and brake-formed from 3/16" plate steel. It completely envelopes the evap canister to protect it from the bottom, front, sides and rear. The front surface of the skid is slanted like a ramp to help slide the Jeep up and over any obstacles that might reach up that far into the Jeeps undercarriage. And of course the skid features the familiar laser cut Spyder symbol. The unique installation method involves removing the stock mounting bracket and securing the canister into the skid using the provided components and hardware. This provides the added benefit of lifting the canister enough to gain an extra 3/4" of ground clearance—including the thickness of the skid itself! The Evap Skid comes powder coated satin black, and comes in a complete kit with hardware and install instructions.
