            This was an easy install and definitely makes my Evap Canister much better protected!

            Easy install with a bit of a challenge

            The install was straightforward, however. The factory Evaporator bolts were rusted bad. Because of this it was a bit of a challenge to get them lost. I had to use a penetrating spray before I could get them removed. After this the install was a breeze. It looks good and will protect the low hanging fruit.

            Essential for every JK

            Great product, beefy and straightforward install. Customer pics helped, as instructions are pretty bad. 30 mins, tops. I used 5/8" socket, couple of extensions, a u-joint, and the included hex key. 5/8" open/box end wrench. Every JK should have this- your evap can is super exposed, and is plastic. Buy this product for your JK. Then, get an oil pan skid.

            Happy so far!

            I purchased this for my son's 2011 JKU, we had it installed in about 30 minutes. Good way to teach a 17 year old how to wrench. Most of the time was trying to line up the various bolt holes. Instructions were a bit confusing and pictures were too small to see with my old eyes. YouTube to the rescue. Well built and sturdy, definitely think it will work for what we needed.

            Solid Built

            Got this in and installed very easy. I was surprised at how solid built this was and how easy it was to install. It took me 30 mins from start to finish to install. I am a gear head and have worked in the mechanic automotive field my entire life so it might take someone that is not as mechanically inclined a bit longer but I believe anyone could install this. I would highly recommend this over the more expensive ones being it is so solid built.

            Great skid plate

            Install was quick and easy. Tip: don’t take bolts holding existing canister in place, loosen front and back. Take front one out the slide the new rear bracket over canister from front to back then install new front bracket leaving bolts loose, them remove rear bolt and install new rear bracket. Then align everything and tighten down all bolts. This is for 2007-2011 JK or JKU.

            5 2008 Wrangler - PhilF

            Easy to install

            The instructions tell you you need a friend to help install but if you don't take the back bolts all of the way out you can slide the plate on without dropping the evaporator down. I like the looks and it should give the evaporator the protection it needs this summer/fall when we go wheeling. After installing and putting everything away it took a little over 1 hour. I didn't jack the jeep up but just crawled around on the driveway.

            Thick skid.

            I'm not sure that you need this thick and heavy duty of a skid for an evap, but you certainly are not going to ever damage it. Went in easy. Extends well beyond the evap and connecting lines.

            Beefy product!

            I saw the evap canister looking vulnerable and went shopping for protection. This RR skid plate was the ticket. It arrived quickly and was found to be super solid for such a small skid plate. Installation was pretty simple and fitment was super. No more worries about the evap!

            Fit real good on my 2010 Sahara looks like it will protect my Evaporator very well and very easy to install.

            Great protection

            The instructions were a little unclear, really bad images but it's pretty easy to figure out without instructions. It is well finished and looks like it would take a beating. Great value for money.

            Easy install and low cost

            Install took probably about 20 minutes top without help. Don't even need the install instructions lol. Good quality skid and will do the job I need it too. The low cost compared to others was a big buying point for me.
