What do you use to cap off the extended vent line?

I have had my diffs vented to the fram fro a while now, but i really don't like having the rubber hose open at the top. What do you guys use to cap the end?? I have read somewhere that they used a VW fuel filter. Any other ideas?
Thanks

Re: What do you use to cap off the extended vent line?

yeah just use a fuel filter of some type. go the parts store and look at all the different types anf figure out which will work best for you but i use one of the smaller ones. also i would vent them up higher than the frame. my front diff breather comes up to the upper portion of my grill and the rear comes up through the body into the rear area of my jeep. water crossings can easily be frame high so put longer hoses on them ans get them up alittle higher.

I got my front diff up over the headlight buckets, but i didn't go that high with the rear. I am pulling the transfercase for rebuild so i will vent the transfercase now.

I have a new 350 tranny with a white plastic piece and a black top on it for a vent. It is really short-1" maybe, how do I hook a vent hose to this?

Re: What do you use to cap off the extended vent line?

I've got all my vents running into my cab. I use stone air filters to cap them off. I ran them up my rollbar under the padding. All you see is the stone filters at the top. Works great, and I think it looks great. The stone filters are like a brass color. hope this helped

Way to go Ricochet- I run my vent lines to a metal fuel line I have on the frame- they all go to the same line, and from there a rubber hose runs up a drain-hole and into the roll-bar padding. There is a small fuel filter on the end of the hose and it makes a little bulge in the padding.

I've heard that chevy makes vent line caps. Talk to the local chevy parts man. They are supposed to be plentiful and CHEAP. My jeepchicks dad taught me to always say, "What would you charge a good freind". It usually works.

I got small air filter breathers at a harley shop. They are the same washable types as K&N air filters, and are about 9 bucks a piece. It fit well on 5/16 hose.
