Stock Breather Tubes

Just checked underneath my 2000 TJ on the front D30 and D35 and wanted to check my breather tubes..

Is it stock for the front breather tube to go up into the hood and open up right next to the top of the radiator, and for the rear to be right next to the filler tube for the gas?

I had heard they were short so I was looking at extending them, but not now that I know!

Just curious if this is how they are stock?

Yes, those are stock vent tube locations IndyJeepMan. There is also a stock transfer case breather tube which goes up the center of the firewall towards the driver's side of the firewall. Newer transmissions have vent hoses but I'm not sure when that started or exactly which of the newer transmissions have them. I only know the 32RH, AX-5, and AX-5 transmissions do not have vent hoses on them, they are open to the water. I haven't even looked to see if my 42RLE auto tranny has a vent hose since I never (well hardly ever) drive through deep water.

Thanks UF and Jerry. It always seems like you chime in early on my questions

Well, i forgot to mention Jerry, I ended up getting an AMAZING deal on my transmission deal we were speaking of!

I went to Bedford Transmission in Bedford, IN. We know the owner on great basis so I told him to drive the Jeep and tell me what he thought, so he figured that it was going out which is what I didnt want to hear and he said he would do what he could to help me out on the rebuild.

His shop is huge and immaculent, he rebuilt it completely with much stronger equipment. He then dyno'd the transmission out of the Jeep, and then inside the Jeep then drove it personally which was good because there was a problem with a PO fix in the engine bay, and he took care of that. Total cost $1400, cost from my pocket... $0. Quiet a nice fix, I was simply astounded at the quality and the fact he helped me out completely! Its good to have business friends you can trade work for

So my Tranny is GREAT! So, where would I find the breather tube on a tranny? Top, or side? I really want to make sure everything is okay under there. I'm like you in that I hate deep water and mud, but theres a few times I will be going through it because of the trail and just wanted to be safe before the event in June!

Thanks!

Great news on your transmission, he really took care of you.

Pretty sure your 30RH has its vent in the same place the 32RH does, which is in front of the transmission inside the bell housing. Some with the 32RH weld or otherwise seal the front vent which is vulnerable to deep water and install a new vent on top by drilling a hole in the top and tapping it for a barbed hose fitting.

I had seen that done before on here, and was really looking into that, but could that hole simply be plugged instead of welded? I can weld but if it means simply pull the housing and put in a plug, thatd be much quicker. But I don't want to skip any corners I wish I could say I'd never touch deep water but with the wheeling areas out here in Indiana, water is a daily occurence on the trail. I need to get out west

It's aluminum so it needs someone who knows how to weld that material. JB-Weld might seal it too.

Here's a nice writeup on that mod... Relocating vent on 32rh 3 speed auto

That works! My cousin is a certified aluminum welder! Score!

Thanks for the write up Jerry, will save that for future reference, currently talking to the fab shop having them bend and cut my custom rockers!

Edit. Jerry, that looks like a PITA! I may just stick to going around the deep water, heck it'd have to be pretty deep to get up in there anyways. I'm sure my luck the metal shavings would be the death of my Trans. Thanks though!

Just did it last weekend...It definitely is a PITA! I know tho that if I didnt do it, I'd be worried every time I went through water. It's the cost of assurance I suppose...
