Differential breather

Hey guys


The new hp d30 going in doesn't have the same kind of connection for the diff breather as the axle that was already on the jeep. In fact it doesn't have any type of connection at all, just a hole. Is there a piece I can buy that mounts in the hole to attach the tube to? What would you do?

maybe it just had a rubber grommet attachment....
might check the Jeep dealer for a part number, then see if a parts store has the part... even at a dealer it shouldn't be more than just an arm, no leg hopefully

tap the hole ..... for a fitting
