Vent tubes?

anybody use them? heard about them from my co-workers. they're used for the differentials and the transmission to keep water out and still have its function. So anybody here have experience with? where can i find some? i'm assuming that its nothing more than a rubber hose with a filter at the end or somthin like that, i think? i sunk my jeep this past weekend and now i gotta replace fluids, i'd like to prevent this again and still have some fun in the water/mud holes!! so if anyone has any input or info on this, please let me kno!! Thank you!!

The front axle breather should be on the back side of the dif and should extend up the engine bay. The rear axle breather will be located on the axle tube where the block sits for the rear brake lines. The TCase and tranny also have them located close to the top of each. All of these are vented so that pressure does not build up in them and blow the seals out. This is also how these components can get water in them. For the Tranny and the TCase it's best if you run them up high enough where they won't be under water. The rear axle is a little hard to do, I usually run mine into the frame.

I redid mine and mounted them all as high as possible. The tranny,xfer case,and front diff. are all located in the same location so that I only have to watch one part of the front end to keep it out of water. They are located just under the vent in cowl. I ran the rear diff. vent up as high as possible behind the drivers tail light and zip tied it to the wire harness for the tail lights.

I made up a central breather for the whole jeep on mine. What I did was buy a bunch of rubber line (fuel I think), a couple plastic tees, some hose clamps and some of those insulated loop things to secure it to the frame. I ran the rear breather line down the driverside frame to the t-case and put a tee in. One leg of the tee went to the t-case and the other went forward down the frame to the firewall where I put in another tee. One leg from that tee ran to the front axle and the other went up the firewall to the top where I used one of the factory breather caps. Done.

They were all stiff and the front diff. line got ripped off. So I extended them all. Fuel line works and I had alot left over from putting an electric pump on. I was under the jeep anyway so I did them all and put new breather caps on them.

Can you use pretty much any rubber line as long as it fits?

Yes you can use what ever.

Just an FYI, I used 3/8" rubber fuel line.
