Filter casing down my front LH wheel

Hi Everyone, I have a 1996 ZJ, have done a 5.5 inch suspension lift and currently running 35s. Just in front of the LH front wheel is what looks like a casing of some sort. Its in a pretty vulnerable position. What is this thing and can it be removed or replaced? See attached photos

Welcome to the forum.

That is the fuel charcoal canister. It hold fuel vapors for burning in the engine instead of venting to the atmosphere.

Just return the vehicle to the stock configuration for complete protection.

Remove the charcoal canister and relocate it in the engine compartment. My canister has been sitting between air intake tube and master cylinder for the past 9 years.

Wingless meant if you had a stock bumper the canister would be somewhat hidden. That being said, it certainly isn't protected under there.

And if you live in a place that requires inspection each year and the check engine light must be OFF to pass, don't get rid of it, because it has to be functional for you to have the check engine light OFF.

As long as the hoses are connected to the canister, it doesn't really matter where it is located.
