Where this hose goes - '12 JKUR

Today I saw oili sput on my driveway under my JEEP and took a look if there is something visible. I found rubber hose with white plastic "end" which goes nowhere and comes from the front diff /it is located by the top end of the shok on the drivers front side/. The hose is oily and there is oil traces around it.

The Jeep is stock, no lift, didn't go off road and used last weekend 4H only for no more than 50 feet total / had to park the Jeep in very inclined and driveway and on 2H it was spinning tires/

I wonder if it is going somewhere or it is like vent for the doff and if it is a vent if it is normal to leak oil from it.

There is pic of the loose end of the hose

Thanks

That's you breather. Axle might have been overfilled some and a little fluid came out.

You are correct. It's your breather tube for your diff. The back one is located behind the passenger rear tire.

Mine has never spit out oil that I have noticed....my guess would be if the diff was over filled maybe it would spit oil???

Not 100% tho. But if u do plan to off road and go through water etc.... it is advisable to extend this hose as well as ur rear diff, transfer case and transmission breather tubes. If I remember it's just 5/16" fuel or break line hose. Use some hose clamps and reuse the white "valve" from the original one.

when you say go through water - I have a boat and during lunch I have to go in to the water, not deep, until the rear bumper at the max. Do I have to extend rear vent lines?

Ur rear breather tube ends on top of ur frame. If deeper than or close to this I would. I extended nine up and it ends inside the compartment behind the tail light.

Always check the Diffs if over the breathers. Extending them is a good idea.
