I know I've got a breather tube up under the hood. I thought it was for my transmission. I'm going to check a little more tomorrow as when I got home the storm hit us here in FL. Actually got to drive in it. It was pretty bad but outran it and got home before it started here.

The breather tube that is on the airbox is for the front diff.

I've been out getting my jeep dirty the past couple of weeks, spent a week at The King of The Hammers event, that was an amazing event, well worth going to!
Here's a photo of my niner out there, you can see I got the tail light brush guards installed.



The dust was so bad at times you could only see 50 feet.
Took 3 days to clean my niner inside and out, also back flushed my heater core and it works now.
The only thing not working now in this niner is the driver side heated seat.


Only those who will risk going too far
can possibly find out how far one can go.

WHERE did you get those tailight guards?

Finished my offroad lights in front of my grille, and listened to the weird bubbling behind my dash. Filled coolant and bought a new rad cap.

Mine would be if my wife knew how to drive a 5speed. It's actually OK that it did it cause it was slightly slipping between 1st and 2nd and 3rd before the water got in it. I checked a little better this morning and there's really not that much in it. I checked my axles and they both have breather tubing that runs up high so I'm pretty sure no water got in there.
