Breather tube

I recently lifted my jeep about 3 inches and the breather tube for the rear differential isnt long enough anymore. It seems like i could reroute it from another direction, or do i need a new one. I was wondering what you guys did or if you had this problem. thanks

I'm looking to do this as well - mine seems to be stretched a little too tightly over the fuel lines after doing my 3" FT lift. Is this any special hose? Do you need any special clamps?

You can just extend the existing one, no need to replace it. You can usually get a length of hose cut to length or buy a packaged length from your local auto store. Just measure the inside and outside diameter of the breather hose so you get the right size extension. Then just buy an adapter to mate the two together.

I think I extended mine 4", at the axle.
