Poison Spyder evap skid

Did a search but couldnít find an answer. Does anyone have the Poison Spyder evap skid plate (Poison Spyder Customs:) I was thinking of getting one but would like some feed back if possible.

I do. Went with them because their skid goes all the way around - all sides are protected.

Fairly easy to install. Would def buy again!

Mine's picked up some scrapes, but no dents or anything.

It was my first skid, and I remember the metal being way thicker than I expected. If it did take a direct hit, I wouldn't be worried about it.

Why not re-locate? It gets it out of the way and avoids adding MORE weight. TrailBoss JK Evap Canister Relocation Kit by KiLBY Enterprises and Other Jeep Parts and Jeep Accessories by 4 Wheel Drive Hardware-RH1

It is the plastic thing in the pic. http://www.jeepswag.com/jeep_jk_evap...er%204xfix.jpg

This one has been relocated. It is normall on the drivers side in the middle of the vehicle. It is very vunerable and from what I understand the vehicle goes into limp mode if it is damaged.

Itís part of the emissions system. Itís located right in the middle of your Jeep on the left side of the rear drive shaft. It looks like a rectangle black box. Have you never been under your Jeep? Well I guess it could already been relocated if you bought your Jeep used. In that case thatís why youíve never seen it. If so, then itís right above you rear axle.

Or maybe you just ripped it off somewhere.

Sometimes I think Im under my Jeep more than in it i guess I just never realized what it was... ill have to check it out later... i didnt buy used so i know its not relocated... I could have probably ripped it off though but I dont have any probs that suggest that and I would think I would have noticed it.
