axle vent tubes....vent caps?

gona put some vent tube lines on the F+R axle. Several sites have said to run the line up high and just make a 6" J loop to keep water from gett'n in... this sounds like it would work but dust has a magic way of gett'n every where so I'm lean'n away from that method.... another site said to put fuel filters on the end of the lines.... Reckon that would allow for enough air flow to work correctly? Or does some one know a make/model of a vehicle that has extend lines factory that you can buy a breather by its self to install on the tube'n i've got?

Thanks for any help

My wife's '02 Tracker has factory extended vent lines.

Re: axle vent tubes....vent caps?

I ran the rear up through the boot where the filler neck goes through the bottom of the tub. I used electrical tape and a rag for a filter.
The front I plumbed up to the air intake and use a rag and tape for a filter.
It would be better to use a real filter, but I was in a pinch so thatís what Iíve got. Seems to work fine.

On another note, everyone that runs through water and mud should check their gear oil and front knuckles regularly and change the oil/grease as needed. My front knuckles seem to stay full of water. I beak them down every one to two months and they always have a ton of water in them.
