what sensor you need again? I have my evap canister sitting on my garage floor and its not going back into my jeep. I can take a part off it if i have it...Otherwise i will probably just toss mine, or sell it to someone who smashed there stock one.

there is a small line that runs from the tank to the fuel filler neck, it goes into the neck maybe 2" from the cap. my guess is this is to sense whether or not the gas cap is on, but today i snapped it off of the filler neck.

ill either shave it and attempt to press it back in, get one off of a friends rig no longer using the stock filler neck, or ask the parts guy at my work what it would cost to order a new one, if it's cheap ill just order it. if not ill just get some flexible rubber line for a lawn mower or something and run that into it.

Haha I still will need to run a line, I'm pretty sure the jk should have a sensor for fuel storage leaks. But I think I'll so with the small rubber line

Have you considered just moving the frame side control arm mounts backwards instead of getting all new control arms? That's what we did with our 2-door stretch. It started off with a BDS 4" long arm lift, and then we just moved the new control arm mounts backwards on the frame 4" from where they were supposed to be installed. That way you can still keep the same suspension geometry

i thought about it, but i wanted all new control arms, something thatll allow more flex, longer with better joints was the way to go imo, i'm hoping not much will change aside from anti squat

I'm not positive but won't you have to make new upper and lower shock mounts to eliminate bind since you're changing the geometry? I'm just wondering and by no means an expert, I could be completely wrong haha

haha, the other one was full of plans that were never executed, plus i hated sorting through the threads in the jk forum since i spend my time reading over here anyways. easy fix was to make a thread here and only post about mods after i make them.

Your anti squat will definitely change as well as other things.. Id throw it in the 3 link calculator if you know your rigs weights/measurements. As for the guy saying shock mounts will cause bind not sure wtf hes getting at...
