I'll be installing my raised breather hoses tomorrow morning if any J.C. wants to stop by to do theirs. I've got 100' of 5/16" fuel line. It takes about 25' per rig so I guess there are three openings. :D

Shoot me a PM and I'll give you my address (Berlin). Probably looking at 10-11am.

Aren't there four openings? Two diff, transmission and transfer case? I was reading that procedure today and that TC one looks a bitch to reach. Have fun! :beer:

Wish I could do it tomorrow, but don't even have my rig back from the shop yet... Hoping to have it by tomorrow night so I have it for Sunday's run atleast. Really do need to raise my breathers though.

And that's why I haven't done my tcase yet! It's on the firewall. The hoses do have one way valves on them so I'm crossing my fingers they do the job.
I reached behind the engine, pulled it down to unseat it from the clip, pulled the valve out, installed a coupler with a hose clamp and extended it. Much easier than replacing it from under the tcase.

that is how i did mine also just extended the others so i only used about 10 foot of hose the rear rear i extended to the role bar and zip tied it the other two i extended to the cowl panel and haven't had any problems also if you leave the hose long until you get it to where its going before you cut it it will make life easer for you ....

I also extended, rather than replaced, all of mine. I used brake line tubing that I cut into small sections, and skids inside the ends to join two hoses. Hose clamps to keep things snug & tight.

Oh, and those OEM ends are not one way valves, just breather caps. Of submerged they're not going to really help.
