    The automatic transmission breather is on the top & center of the transmission, out of sight. Besides you would have to pull the transmission to extend the breather.

    Transfer case breather is on the top near the shifter arm, also out of sight but accessible from the top if you remove your interior shifter plate.

    Stock not for very long
    Do you ship to Canada and ( if not) would you be willing to ship just the fittings without the hose and clamps so I won't get raped on shipping/tax/brokerage fees?
    I can source those locally

    Here's a dumb question: why use a random fuel filter instead of an actual breather e.g. PN 90930A3001?

    EDIT: Now I understand the advantage of an open - if you will "true" - bleeder created by the fuel filter. However, is a fuel filter enough to keep dust out? Seems like it could suck in particulates as the diff cools.
