    A slew of pricey stuff my wife hates me for.
    I was thinking you'd end up with a large line once they're all tied in. Might be easier to create a small plate steel bracket in the engine bay so three or four breathers could be mounted dress-right-dress.

    My worries exactly. I think I will make a different version of this mod and post it up later.

    One with all independent breathers run to the same location and fixed to a mount plate that has a cover on it. I'll try :rolleyes:

    Here's the breather I built. I'll install everything once the liquid gasket sets up.

    Here's a question. Has anyone tested the breather on the tansfer case and transmission to see if it's actually a one-way valve? I'm in the middle of my breather relocation and put the new line in for the transfer/transmission last night. I checked to see if the oem valve was still working properly and discovered that it was a two-way valve. It looks just like the valve on the rear diff, except that there isn't a ball bearing in it.

    So is this a bad part, or is it intended to be an open line?

    Not sure if this has already been covered, but original post was an FJ Cruiser and the rear e-locker breather on the Tacoma appears to be going into the cross beam above the rear differential - and from there I can't tell if it ends inside that cross beam, or if it goes into a plastic box directly above that cross beam - I can't tell what that plastic box is for.

    Anyway, for the Tacoma, I suspect the e-locker location is probably high enough for most people - someone correct me if I'm wrong on this.

    Great writeup by OP!!

    edit: whoops, I read through the earlier posts - people already discussed - the e-locker breather goes into the cross-beam above the differential and probably doesn't need to be extended for most people.
