I'm just wondering if anyone has a write up for extending the front differential breather? If anyone has part numbers for what they used that would be awesome as well. Thanks everybody

just go to an auto parts store and buy a longer piece of tube and run it back up into the engine bay. you can take your old breather tube with you if it will help them find the correct tube size

Tim, I just took mine off and went to autozone. I purchased some length of the same inner diameter tube and extended mine up, routing it away from the exhaust.

I don't have a writeup, but you should be able to do it very easily. Min actually follows my control arm up to the body, then up under the hood and tied to the shock stud.

Thanks guys. I am also wondering if anyone know the diameter of the hole that is actually in the differential. I am missing the the little piece that attaches the to the tube. I know I can get the one from the dealer but I just want to go get one at auto-zone instead. And then match it with a tube while I am there.
