I also say give up on naps. My son stopped taking naps before he was 2 and is now 4. He goes to bed around 9-930 and wakes up at 7. If he goes to bed late, the latest he'll get up is at 8. How about also making sure you "drain" him out in the afternoon or before dinner. I sometimes have to do that with mine because he tends to be a very hyper one lol.

Yup me too! No naps. Maybe some quiet time, or listen to music as a mid day break for him.

I'm in the same boat as you only I cannot knock the nap otherwise he gets super naughty from being too tired.
My son will actually stay up until 11 though whether he's had a nap or not.

Let me know if you figure anything out... Like I said, we have to have that nap otherwise after about 2pm or so, he does absolutely nothing but be naughty. If he takes a nap, just a hours nap, he is so much better!
