2013 breather tubes

If it was already known, I missed it. While doing the front lift on my 2013 JK I noticed that the front axle breather tube ends at the top of the shock tower on the drivers side and not up higher on the firewall. did anyone else find this?

Yep, same on the rear. Pick up some rubber tubing and vacuum hose connectors and extend them. Don't forget the transfer case and trans breathers while you're at it.

I just ran them both to the inside of my Jeep and as high up as I could go. No water should get to them there and haven't had any smell or leaking inside the cabin.

Pictures are from when I monstalined my tub and I have a couple other pics on page 3 of my build thread.

FYI - if your axles / tcase / trans is hot and gets in cool/cold water, you will have water enter through the seals regardless of breather tube length.

Cross a stream - check/change the fluids.
