Breather Tubes

I asked Daggo on my snorkel thread but thought it might disserve its own.

Opinions on running breather tubes into air box? I think this is the way I am going to do it based off River Raiders design.

Just curious on others thought or experiences.

I just did the River Raider myself and love it. Just watch when doing the transaxle lines. Around the front axle it looks like they miss when I had mine rub but that axle moves up during hard braking and hard bumps pretty far. But other then that it was installed in about 45 minutes

I think raising is a good idea, but not sure about putting the ends into the air box. What happens if/when you overfill the diffs and they puke oil - all inside the box? If you don’t overfill the diffs, will the sucking on the tubes by the engine affect anything engine-wize or diff-wize?

It shouldnt.. Id say just run it beside the box and make sure its adequately protected from water spray.. Or run it up beside the snorkel. Just my 2 cents

I was thinking this also....But it seems like that would have to be a lot of over filling to get it to travel up that length of hose.

I think the front is more sensitive to over-filling, and it's pretty close to the box.

Never heard of anyone ever having that problem, it is sort of like worrying if the engine oil would spit oil back into the breather. If this was a real concern I think they would have problems selling the kit. No problems with the kit that I have ever heard of. It is a long ways up to the breather hose from the bottom of the frame. If you are really worried about it then anytime you change fluids, disconnect the hose and drive it down the road to make sure there is no over fill.

Puking oil? The first time I filled my diffs with my aftermarket Riddler covers it seemed fine, but about 3 months later when we hit summer temps and the front diff got hot on the trail it puked up - fortunately it just got fender well oily. I overfilled it by 1/8 of a quart. Overfilling typically happens after someone installs aftermarket covers and have to guess what the new oil level should be.

Here’s a pic that I found of someone that overfilled their diff (not me):
