    Move your vents up!

    Want to keep the water out of your diff's and transmission on those deeper water crossings? Your going to have to move your vents up as high as they can go. Thats what I did today. The factory location for the front diff is actually pretty good I just moved it up a little bit higher, It used to mount to the side of the air box. The rear one however just went up into the unibody and would've easily sucked up water on a crossing. I routed this one up to the front in the same location as the front diff vent.

    The factory hose is 3/16" so I went out and bought a role of that from Napa.

    Factory Hose


    Where the vents ended up. The front one originally was mounted to the side of the air box.


    Find your vent on the diff.


    It originally went from the vent into the unibody almost right above itself


    New hose on the vent


    I then started routing it down the unibody with the brake/fuel lines. You can see I left quite a bit of excess here, this is because over the winter the jeep is going up about 8" and I didn't want to have to do this again. If you do this make sure its tucked up and out of the way of anything that could grab it and rip it off.


    I secured it along the brake/fuel lines with zip ties


    I tried to keep it as far away from the exhaust as I could at this point as I didn't want the radiating heat to melt it.

    I ran it under the motor mount in the little nook that hides there.

    Thats a long vent line!!
    I removed my abs on my jeep and the rear axle line now goes up through where the abs wires used to go into the cabin, right under the rear seat.
    I moved my front line back to the firewall.

    ^ I was just going to suggest that.

    Save yourself a lot of aggravation and just attach vent bellows on your axles and t-case vents. There is no need to run vent lines all over your truck.

    I like it.

    Nice work!

    If I was a Jeep, they'd have parted me out a LONG time ago.

    Yes, I have been running them for 2 years with zero issues. It saves a heap of plumbing, are easy to install and creates a positive seal.

    2) Dvsjeep is a PSC dealer and he was stocking these at one time....PM him.

    3) Some ATV shops carry them as they are a popular addition to ATV's.
