Rear Diff Breather in Tail Light Housing

Then zip tied the hose to one of the bolts. Secured the hose at various point along the way.

The new breather location


Zip tied to a bolt for security


Wasp nest...I should have left it

I'm not sure if they are water spots or not, but seems to be more secure than the engine bay for the front and overflowing gasoline could contaminate the gas cap position. I don't know of any absolutely secure place except for inside the cab.

Has anyone determined why there are two different type of breathers on the from differential. One is spring loaded like the rear and the other one is a two way breather like the rear mod mounted together. From all of the online part illustrations it shows the two way breather going to the housing of the frnt differential but every illustration I look at does not show where then spring loaded breather line goes. It does not show it going to the diff. It's the thin line. Does anyone ave a pick to where this line is attaching?

I also placed mine inside the space behind the tail light and up underneath the top rail of the bed. I'm fairly certain no water can get in that location. I moved it from the gas cap compartment because water was getting in there.

When i did my rear breather mod i duplicated the front breather setup and ordered the bracket,clip, bolt and then i mounted this inside my bed compartment. It makes it a little bit more secure then just sticking it through the side and hanging there.

Never mind I was able to track the small one goes to the actuator for the diff and the large one to a port in the diff.

Completed this mod today. Was going to run it up to the rear light but went with the storage compartment. If water makes it up to that point there are bigger concerns then the diff breather IMO.

+1, I ordered the OP's version of parts... does it matter? It looks like the 51026 is plastic and the 51319 is metal?

EDIT: so one of them is painted black and the other is not? Sounds like it doesn't really matter which setup you run...

yep, 51319 and 03136 with 5/16" ID hose is the best way to go imo

but i actually used 03136 and 51026 with 5/16" ID. 5/16 is a little to large for 51206 and 1/4" is a little to small for 03136 but i wasn't going to pay for new parts and it is a good enough fit

Did mine today

Did my mod today only my location is the storage box in the rear on drivers side if you open the little door you will see it. One other thing besides having enough hose for axle travel is keep it off the brake hoses you dont want any rubbing there. I put a space of a good 3 inches away from them. Worst part for me is removing spare tire. You can do it with it on but I wanted to check my spare and clean up around it.
Finding that spot the hook goes in in a bit of a pain but a flashlight helps.

If you do it just do it right and go as high as you can. People don't like the gas door because sometimes when pumping gas it wont let the nozzle properly seal. The cubby will be easy and do good for your needs.
