That's where it's supposed to go. There are clips built into the air box to hold the breather tube.

Mine kept falling out of the clips so I zip tied it to the power steering lines.

Finished the lift kit last night around midnight, now waiting on the jeep to get an alignment, in the waiting room watching history channel. Ha

Used it to get 50 gallons of premium gasoline for $1.99/gallon. A new gas station opened up and for two hours everything was $2.00 off.

Last night and today the jeep has definitely been taken care of:

*LAST NIGHT*
- 3.5" foundation lift kit IRO
- installed adj front and rear track bars IRO
- adjusted the power steering box along with a rebuild (which was leaking oil)
- ripped out the old brake pads/rotors, put in brand new ones
- In the front I kept the old isolator pads and put on a new pair as well so double stacked them. (bought from kolak) (I have an extra pair too if anyone wants them)
- Bought NEW rear coils with the kit, instead of doing the F to B swap, which the old front coils were about .75"-1" shorter than the new rear coils I bought, (so I double stacked the pads in the front, to even it out)

I'm thinking I have right under a 4" lift
*TODAY*
Alignment and balanced/rotated tires
And made the lift official by putting on the IRO stickers

My IRO 3.5 sits at 4" according to their stock measurements. I don't measure mine stock before I lifted it though.

Anyone think $1500 is a good asking price for my Jeep? Moving from TX to NC and won't have the room or time for three vehicles.

'96 ZJ 5.2L 159K miles
Good:
*IRO 3.5" BenchMark lift
*31x10.5 BFG A/Ts w/about 80% tread left
*ARB Safari Snorkel
*All-Aluminum Radiator and E-fan
*All electrics work
*Starts and drives hassle free
*New Alternator, Battery, O2 Sensors, Magnaflow cat, Kolak 2.5" Mandrel bent exhaust, and serviced front and rear diffs.

Bad:
*Vibration from the drive train, either the flexplate-to-torque converter is out of balance or something else.
*A/C needs charged every summer
* No front driveshaft...and think the front pinion bearing is howling?
*Failed emissions due to a PO420 code.

Today I took apart and cleaned my rear wiper motor assembly, which never worked until today.

Followed the instructions in this thread -

Worked as if a wizard had done it!

Installed my new Stillen cross drilled rotors (thanks Kolak!), IRO extended stainless steel brake lines, new reman calipers and thermoquiet pads.

also did a tire rotation and about to do a quick oil change.

might even start my cooling system rebuild tonight, we'll see.
