Evap Canister Relocation OPTIONS for a 2006 TJ

I have a 2006 TJ that has been stretched about 5" along with new D60 axles & 37" Pitbull Rockers and coilover springs the rear. Genright Crawler gastank & skid enabled the stretch.

I do not have enough room for the EVAP canister in its stock location in the back right wheel well. The rig is registered in NY and the lack of evap canister throws codes and the check engine light which doesn't work so well during the inspection process.

Yes, I've read around 20 threads (mostly older ones) discussing the evap canister and pictures are missing from many of them.

I'm looking for pictures and recommended places for the evap canister to be relocated.

With the 2003 and later technology, I read that the canister should not be more than 3 feet from the gas tank so with my rig, that probably means inside the back hatch or under the rig. Obviously, I would want a skid plate under it.

Does anybody have any recommendations, especially with pictures?

Thank you in advance.

Fox Coilover shocks in the rear. 5" WB stretch.

The canister can go anywhere there's room like the floor pan or deleted. I leave the rest of it in place and cut down the bracket.
On the lj it can move rearward to the tj location.
I want your factory 07-up take-off/thrown out JK front/rear Lower Control Arms! Bent ones are perfect also as long as the bushings and cold cut rings are in good shape/useable
