Has anyone moved their evap canister? i just want to move it up a few inches. I know with the stock airbox there theres not a lot of room, but maybe with an intake? Thanks 96 4.0

A bunch of people just turn it sideways and zip tie it in, theres a thread around here somewhere where he moved the air box and put the canister in the engine compartment.

I did mine similar to Technohead in the other thread but I turned it on it's side. It looks exposed but once I put my bumper on it was protected.

I tucked mine way up behind the bumper. Used the existing studs on the canister and bolted them through the jeep
