I do not think you would want anything that attaches to the body as it would just transfer the hit and probably F-up the floor.

This other thread about the overseas 'vibration damper' got me thinking....just run something across frame to frame...done.

All in all, sucks some guy hit theirs, but I think you are worried over nothing....pretty freak occurrence.
Good thought! Makes sense to mount it on the two adjacent support members. Thanks for the suggestion And while itís a relatively infrequent occurance, with the advent of my high departure angle bumper Iíve been tackling more extreme drop offs and rock gardens that place rocks more in the canister vicinity No need for senseless destruction when a simple plate will prevent it!

Re: Charcoal canister skid?

I like the idea of bolting or welding in an additional cross member between the frame rails. Some 1 3/4" DOM and a little bit of 1/4" plate would be easy money.

You mean running perpendicular to the two rails? Hmmmmm

Keep the ideas coming folks - this is great!

Re: Charcoal canister skid?

I was working on a box to cover it. IDK. I'll look at it some more tomorrow and see if my idea will work. Is protection there necessary? No. But it is piece of mind and cheap insurance. Plus I live for modifying the FJ in different ways.

You guys could just get body lifts. Mine is 1.5" taller than all of yours.

Re: Charcoal canister skid?

I don't believe the rear factory skid mounts to the bumper.... it has mounting point before it reaches the bumper and just sat below the bumper. I've removed mine to save on weight in the back... at some point I'll likely put it back on but I will have to tweak it a bit due to the Exp1 rear bumper.
(this is going off memory as it's been a few years now... the skid has been sitting in the corner or my garage for a bit)

Suck it up... it's only -40

Re: Charcoal canister skid?

My 2008 Trail Teams was the one year that all TTSEs came with that factory rear skid and after reading this thread I'm glad I still have mine! It works in conjunction with my ARB rear bumper and like Winterpeg said, I don't believe it mounts to the actual bumper. So you may be able to get it to work Deb!

Re: Charcoal canister skid?

My charcoal canister is smaller than yours, and is mounted in the engine bay aft of the fuse box.
i see no reason why you couldn't just bolt a piece of Al plate between the chassis rails to protect the delicate bits there. I of course have an OEM 80L aux tank wrapped in a steel skid in that location...

I was backing up in the hills and didn't see a large rock. It tweaked the tailpipe and the exhaust leak was blowing directly on to the canister. It also melted the coax going to my rear camera and the wires for the sonar things. One reflector fell out of the stock bumper. I found an aftermarket one for like $2 and had to use a heat gun to reform the bumper wings.

I got a replacement canister from a Toyota wrecking yard in Cali for ~$200. But I still get an error code at times minor leak. I want to give it a smoke test to see where the leak is.
How did it run after the canister was compromised? Throw codes?

This happened around Ouray. It was a couple of days later, when driving a friend to the airport in Albuquerque. High speed, pulling a couple of hills. I got a bunch of lights, including the skid and traction control, and a smell. I have an Ultragauge so accessed the codes. P0441 and P0445 if I recall. Gross evap leak and minor evap leak. A rubber plug in the cargo area melted and the carpet in the cargo area got crispy in one spot.

I replaced the cannister and the larger tube that connects to it. Now I still get the P0441 minor leak sometimes. I am debating on how to find the leak. I could connect to an air source and pressurize to a max of 1/2 PSI. I would have to rig a manometer for that. Or use one of those smoke machines that shops use.

But no change in how it drove or performance when the lights are on.

Yes itíll light up the Christmas tree and as a result, you wonít have ATRAC. For me thatís a problem when wheeling, but not a big deal on pavement.
