Rear Axle Breather

What have you guys done to fix the problem of flexing the rear suspension until the rear axle breather tube pops off? Longer hose I assume?

A couple of things.... I tied mine into the air box so, yes, longer hoses plus I added some hose clamps for incidentals. I flexed it all the way out then - added a little more for shits & giggles - then secured it to where the two brake lines come down. I will dig up a pic.

I was just looking at mine yesterday while I had the rr wheel off. Although I did lengthen it about 5" some time ago, I secured it at the stock location on the edge of the body near the right rear wheel well. It's picking up a lot of moisture & dirt there, so I thought about extending it up into the body behind the tail light. Anyone else tried this or have a better plan?

Solid responses, thanks guys. Roughly 6" longer like the subject line of half my emails then? Do I extend the current tube or replace the tube with a longer one?

Replace the line, keep the stock little cap and put it on the new line
