Creeper Breather?

has anyone used these? there for Toyota's but i don't think it would be hard to make them work for a jeep (might even be the same size?) i wounder how well they would hold up. might be an easy solution for the rear... what do you guys think?

the rear bumper is basically as high as it can go right? i extended the front as high as i could under the hood, cost me almost $20 for the hose and box of clamps. not that i care, $20 is cheaper than new gears. but no one thinks this would work or hold up?

ya but it needed to be longer when i installed my long arms. so i mounted the end up high and kinda zig-zaged the slack so it could pull out at full drop and not pull the end down. haha does that make sense..?
