Axle breather hose

Hello guys i have a 95 yj wrangler and I've been preparing it to go off roading and in mud and water etc i was told i had to extend the axle breather hoses higher so that water doesn't get in i it does my axle will lock up and I'm screwed basically. So i was told there was two hoses one in the front axle and another in the general question is where and how high should i extended the hoses

If your 95 still has the stock setup, you can trace the rubber hoses from the differentials upwards and see where they currently end. The rear should go up behind the driver's taillight, the front should lead forward and end next to the radiator on the driver's side. They should both have check valves at their ends.
They should already end about as high as your headlights, if you get that deep you have other things to worry about as well.
