    I forgot to add one more question to my original post. There is a small cylindrical looking thngy (almost like a small black coffee can) in between the seats and it appears to have hoses running to it....what the heck is that thing????

    Yup. Sounds like the charcoal canister. I've never seen one between the seats though.

    Yeah i can be, just make sure to leave the right line open. You'll loose some mileage during the summer due to evaporation, but it can also be relocated basically anywhere. Thats what i would do, just move it under the truck or under the hood, and re-route the lines goin to it. Hope this helps
