Breather tube Extensions

If i were to tie all my breather tubes into a single hose and run that hose into my air intake box so i dont have to worry about my breathers taking on water:

1. Do i have to worry about my components mixing fluids when the fluid expands possibly into the single tube. ex: the transfer case and rear diff mixing fluids?

2. Are the only breathers that need relocated are the axles?

3. If i don't have to worry about extending my transfer case breather do i have to worry about getting water in it?

1) Yes, keep the hoses separate.

2) No, you have a breather on the transfercase. The breather's end is behind the engine on the fire wall. It starts on top of the T-case.

3) See above.

Do i only have to worry about keeping my transfer case and axle hoses separate or do all three need to be separated?

Hopefully this will help you out

I decided to post a write-up a couple weeks back being the sparse amount of threads about extending the breathers. This video I made will show you the locations on a manual to extend. The auto also has a breather on the transmission to extend.


MY WRITE-UP
The JK forum has a touch more info on how I extended the front, but that's pretty obvious. If your not a member of that forum and cannot see the pictures, then the wrangler forum has all the info you need.

If you have the proper fluid levels it probably doesn't matter either way. If you have an aftermarket differential cover it can be more of an issue. Those are easier to overfill with diff fluid that can escape through the tubes. It's a good idea not to relocate the breathers over something really hot, like the manifold, just in case some oil was to escape.

WHY CONNECT THEM IN THE FIST PLACE
Personally I would just keep them all separate. It will use way less hose, and there is no good reason to connect them unless your running them into the air box (like the river raider kit). I also think that is a bit pointless unless your trying to make a submarine. If your playing in water that high you should really change your oils (and probably electronics) afterward anyways.
