    Sounds like good advise. I also bought what was listed in the first post and came home from work today with plans to do it but my daughters car took priority

    The 'union' part I used had the same threads as the factory valve/breather I took off the differential.

    Yes, much harder to clog it up if it is up inside the storage compartment and not down in the mud!

    What size are the hose claps for this?

    I just ordered
    90404-51026
    90930-03136

    I am hoping I don't have to order 90404-51319 instead.

    On the opening post, I took a photo of the parts bag, so nobody would get the wrong number...

    [​IMG]

    On the first page of this thread is a photo of all the parts I bought, including a package of hose clamps... ones that will fit 1/2" to 1" diameter hoses... here's a close up of the end, in the compartment:

    I finished the thread and this is as good a reason for a timely bump as anything.

    The Trail-Gear Creeper Breather addresses the second point ^^^ by collapsing as needed. As long as the bellows remains flexible, airtight, and has sufficient volume, it'll work fine. I'd have to have some proof of steam issues before intentionally damaging a sealed bellows. My main concern with this part is the life span of the rubber. Fuel hose is cheap and lasts a very long time.

    [​IMG]

    The T-G part seems like a good solution, but I'm going with the hose. I ordered the parts from David's OP and should have them installed soon. I'll be crossing the Fremont river in a few weeks, and don't want to worry about water contamination.

    Did anyone ever get confirmation on whether or not the e-locker breather needs to be moved as well? It might have been in the 17 pages, but I easily could have missed it. Just waiting on the parts to do this mod next weekend.

    Did this mod just now. For those wondering like I did, the stock breather threading is the same length as the new union you are replacing it with. It can be tightened all the way down to the differential housing. I was wondering why I saw about 1/4 of the threads on the earlier pics, thinking that it was longer and intruding into the gear area. It's not. +1 Rep for OP!

    Did I do something right?!! LOL

    Thank you! You will also note that I wrapped teflon tape on the threads so it would seal without over-tightening and risk of snapping it off!:cool:

    Completed using David K's part numbers from OP. I ran the hose between the bed structure and zip tied it to the fuel filler tube. No need for the extension for the Fremont last week (5"), but it's good to know it's done.

    Thanks again, David. :wave:

    Just finished this mod, routed my breather through my bed cubby. The actual replacement breather valve I got doesn't have much articulation in the little silver cap over the valve, unlike the stock one from the axle, which moves around a lot. There is not a seal or anything, and it will freely spin, but there is not much of a gap. Anything to be concerned about? first time doing a breather relocation with this type of valve. Thanks
