Is this mod only necessary on the rear diff? Or should it be done on the transmission and front diff as well?

The union thread as mentioned in a previous post on this thread is 1/8 BSPT (British Standard Pipe Taper Thread). Not to be confused with 1/8 NPT (National Pipe Taper Thread).

I'll be doing this mod very soon as I like to cross shallow rivers occasionally. I just need to know how high the breathers are for the manual transmission and the transfer case. That way I'll know if I need an extension on those ones as well.

Anybody know where the rest of the breathers are? The rear diff is easy. I want to do this, but I'd like to get them all.

I've got a manual transmission, as that probably make a difference.
