    Apparently it's $72...

    Could just relocate all of the breathers yourself with $30 worth of tubing and clamps...

    I know about the breather mods I've seen folks doing here, as mentioned, for a lot less then this kit is going for...

    But do those mods alleviate vacuum pressure as well, or just prevent you from sucking water in thru the breather (in the stock location) itself?

    wait vacuum pressure? what?

    its to keep the dirt and water from being sucked into the comp and ruining the locker.

    also, just do the diff mods, they work.

    They are on the right path ( give arb credit) You can hook up 4 trans axles ( front, rear,transmission and transfer case)..

    Tho for a kit like that i would want a valve in place to keep water from entering the unit itself (like a air dryer on Pneumatic) . Moisture alone can work it way down to gears without going off road over time....

    From the "Design and Development" section of the PDF from ARB:

    "A differential / axle breather serves the important purpose on a 4WD vehicle of venting the air pressure in drivetrain assemblies such as the differentials, transmission and transfer case. Under normal operations, these assemblies heat up and
    the air inside expands, increasing the pressure and thus the need to be vented to atmosphere is created. When the drivetrain
    assembly cools down the air inside contracts and creates a vacuum"

    :notsure:
