Rear axle vent ideas


Recommended Posts

I'm pretty sure there is a rubber hose that connects to the plastic fitting on the axle and runs somewhere under the truck but i'm unsure where it's supposed to go. I currently have a small breather filter on my axle vent but it looks rather gaudy and i want to run rubber hose to it again. Anyone got pics of how its routed and where it goes??

I can't give you any pictures but I ran my rear vent up though the bed and next to my tool box. I also put a check valve in it. I would get you some pics but I still don't have my truck.

But I go though alot of water/mud so you might not need it that high.

The stock hose on my 88 ran from the axle to a push in piece in the X member above the axle on the front drivers side. You can probably find the same little push in piece from a rear xj axle vent on the inside of the drivers rail above the axle. They both vented the same way with the same kind of push in plastic piece.

Won't the check valve prevent air from being able to travel back in to the axle?
