Re: Question about the breather tube on the diffs?
My breathers are now halfasialy tubed to up front, the transmission and x-fer case are tapped with 1/4" NPT 90* elbows (ace hardware, about 4 dollars for the 90* and the pipe threadded end) and removed the stock breather caps on the tranny and x-fer, drilled them, tapped them, used teftlon tape, and put it all together. Get the drillbit and tap kit for the 1/4" NPT fittings, Super simple, both units MUST be out of the zook! I pointed the tranny one towards the passenger tire and the transfer case towards the rear passenger tire (estimates...).
I had then used some 10 dollar air hose and some 2 dollar fuel filters and have them halfasialy plumbed into the engine bay (weber + snorkel soon, will redo the breathers then.).
Whole cost for the pipe, 2 fittings, drill bit, and tap was about 25 dollars give or take.
