Rubicon Locker Air Clamp

I have changed out all the fluids in our recently purchased 2006 rubicon. Was excited to see old stuff was all good and no metal shavings to speak of. On both the front and rear differentials I noticed the stainless steel spring hose clamp was no longer on the rubber air line. For what it is worth I managed to get a little more tension on the front so it would stay in place but I just ended up taking the clamp off in the rear. Lockers work fine, any worries about missing or loose clamps?

That little short piece of air hose can come off even with its spring clip in place, I'd get a replacement back on there asap.

Remember that having a different opinion doesn't also require one to be a jerk when expressing it.

When you have a choice, buy American.

A small fuel injector/hose clamp works well in that situation.

03 Rubicon with a few changes.

Thanks Guys, I almost put a zip tie on it but I did not know how it would hold up in a hot gear oil environment. I like the injector clamp idea, if I go that route I believe I will put a dab of rtv on the bolt as a preventative measure. (If the factory clamps came off, I have visions of injector clamp parts floating around getting ground up.)
