The plastic evaporative canister located under the Jeep JK's floorboard is an important part of the Jeep's emissions and engine management system. Unfortunately, Jeep placed this unit in a vulnerable spot where it can be damaged or torn off by rocks and other trail obstacles. Poison Spyder's JK Evap Skid solves this issue by protecting the canister with a rugged skid plate. The design of the Poison Spyder JK Evap Skid has been updated to fit all year models and configurations of Jeep Wrangler JK's, from 2007 to present, both 2-door and 4-door.

The Poison Spyder JK Evap Skid is CNC laser cut and brake-formed from 3/16" plate steel. It completely envelopes the evap canister to protect it from the bottom, front, sides and rear. The front surface of the skid is slanted like a ramp to help slide the Jeep up and over any obstacles that might reach up that far into the Jeep's undercarriage. And of course the skid features the familiar laser cut Spyder symbol.

The unique installation method involves removing the stock mounting bracket and securing the canister into the Evap Skid using the provided components and hardware. This provides the added benefit of lifting the canister enough to gain an extra 3/4" of ground clearance—including the thickness of the skid itself! The JK Evap Skid comes powder coated satin black, and comes with two complete hardware kits for either 2007-2011 or 2012+ installation, and install instructions.

There are several products on the market that deal with the evap canister's vulnerability in different ways. Kits that relocate the canister may result in engine codes that are difficult to diagnose, or may even void your factory warranty. Other skid plate products may protect the bottom of the canister but leave the sides and front vulnerable. Only the Poison Spyder JK Evap Skid keeps the canister in its factory location, with original electrical and vapor connections intact, while fully protecting it from all sides.

5 of 5 A must do if you plan on USING your Jeep March 4, 2016
Reviewer: David Hartline from Beach City , OH United States  
This is a great upgrade from the thin stock one, which is so thin that I would assume it's only on there to protect the canister from roadkill. If you plan on taking your Jeep off road, this is a wise investment.

5 of 5 Great skid, easy install! February 25, 2016
Reviewer: Drew from Elizabeth City, NC United States  
This skid plate is heavy duty, much better than the stock. The install was very smooth, did it by myself in about 30-45 mins. I ended up cutting the stock skid with a sawzall, to get the canister off, as suggested in the instructions, came off much easier that way. And after taking my rig down to Uwharrie National Park, I'm glad I did this install prior, I got a nice scrap across my PSC skid, which would have most likely mangled the stock one. Another excellent product from PSC! Keep up the good work.
