axle/driveshaft questions

I have two questions about my TJ's driveshafts. Where does the rear axle vent hose go to on the body or wherever, and why does the front axle not have one? im thinking of blowing the rear one out with some compressed air, and didnt want a bunch of gear oil to end up in my interior or something.

Also, what gear oil do you guys use? 80w-90 or 75w-140? im thinking of going with 75w150 full synthetic GL-5

pull the rear off- it goes up next to your fill for the gas tank. The front should have one. If not get one on there. They pull on and off. No biggy. I zip tie mine tho. I don't want them coming off when wheeling.

I have the rubicon axles so they want 85-140. I run lucas.

If you haven't gotten more out of the insurance company than you deserve, then you haven't screwed them nearly as much as they have been screwing you for the past xx years.
