You can get a couple more inches from your Tcase and trans breather. If you look down from the driver side where the motor and trans meet you should see a breather. Carefully pull it out of the holder. Mine is rubber and came out easy. You should have a couple inches of extra hose you can pull up. I used zip ties to keep mine up and behind the engine.
I have a 2001 5spd. This the lowest breather on my jeep, it is now only about an inch or so lower than the breathers behind the gas cap. I didn’t tighten up the zip ties too tight so I could leave a little play.
If you want to spend more time and take it higher go here:
