I would suggest simply running longer breather hoses. It is inexpensive, easy to do, rugged, and ensures the inside of the axle is always at atmospheric pressure. You can extend the stock hoses using couplers or run new longer hoses. I used transmission cooler hose when I did mine, as it seemed much more flexible compared to fuel line. If you have done any suspension work, make sure you adjust the hoses to allow full suspension droop. Run the front up into the engine bay, and run the rear up behind the pass side tail light.
I had a kit like that and just ended up not even using it. I sold it for like half of what I paid for it and just extended the lines that mattered. In the end I think it's much easier to do it the DIY way. And much cheaper too.
you can actually buy the exact same part on amazon for a lot cheaper. They are used on the Suzuki Eiger ATV. They work great as long as you arent running ARB's. a little bit of leaking around the collar is going to happen and suddenly you have a 150PSI balloon attached to your axle.
the hardcore toyota guys use the hell out of them.
Got a Creeper Breather sitting here in front of me. I have to say I am somewhat hesitant to put it on.
Reasons being 1 review on Amazon states - "Great concept, but they do not have enough capacity to expand with the heat. If your seals have a weak spot, you will be reselling very shortly after installing these. Stick with a small tube running into you taillight with a filter on it."
I guess I can see how that might happen as the CB is rather rigid. With that being said this concern is also mentioned here -www.lowrangeoffroad.com/do-it-yourself-rubber-differential-breather-bellow.html
I just wonder how these things deal with elevational changes. I can easily change 4,000' in an hour or 2 or better yet 8,000' in about 4 hours like last Fri. But maybe that is just a mute point when I go shopping an see potato chip bags from sea level at 4,000'. But heat expansion is not in the equation.
The CB is easily compressed but is hard to expand at least by hand. Those of you running them have you seen them change much in size from cold to hot operation? That and what elevations are you at?
It cost me about $35 and 45 minutes to extend my front and rear axle breathers. Fuel line and a couple of clamps. I used about 5 feet in the back and about 6 feet in the front. The rear I ran into the rear left taillight area and the front I ran up to the firewall.
Ya, I think that is what I'm going to do. Except I think tranny hose is the thing to use. Not as rigid as fuel hose.
Read some reviews over on the Yota sites and the Creeper breather gets mixed reviews. All the way from works fine to oil leaking because of pressure build up. Seems to work fine on purpose built rigs but not DD like mine. Not a gamble I'm willing to take.

hey guys. I recently put new wheels and tires on the JKU and kept my oem sensors in the new combo. I drove home with the old combo which had no sensors in it and i got no lights. Then later that week i put the new combo on and when i turned on my JSCAN only one sensor was reading tpms pressure...
I broke off not one but two seized bolts from my rock sliders...... What method is best for removing them so I can replace with new bolts in the frame body?
My rock sliders are like new, but I’m at the point that buying new ones and paying the shop to install may be my best option if I...
Hi, I read somewhere (probably on JL forum) that the 3.3 are really long and they ride a little harsh. Someone had suggested for JKu to get the 2 dr version for softer ride and at my 3.5 lift to get the 1.5-2.5 in Falcons instead of the 3-4.5in Falcons since they are so long. Has anyone done this?
