    this is going to be a job for when the weather warms up a little more...


    I've been trying to find them on my 09 automatic also. Seen pics of the 12+ where the transfer is plainly mounted to the firewall behind the engine, but they were on standard tranny Jeeps.

    I think I may have found one of them bolted behind the engine on back of the pass side head, but I cant get a good view or feel of it.

    Is it pretty much the same process for TJ's?

    I did this on my 08, only for the axles though as I couldn't get to the transfer case.

    Having had my 37's recently installed, I can't stop staring at my jeep. This morning I was coming back from taking my dogs for a walk, I panicked I saw a hose hanging from rear axel, not having any idea how catastrophic this damage was I quickly logged on and found it here. Eddie thank you for a form full of much needed information.

    Just wanted to add something to this great writeup....I've used those nylon couplers a lot back in the day when doing turbo/supercharger vacuum line tapping, and after a year or so, the nylon simply disintegrates and turns into a powder.

    When I did my breathers, I used these two items (as well as the fuel line Eddie mentioned)...


    Stainless steel worm clamps to make sure the hoses don't slip off

    And these things to couple the hoses.

    Those couplers come with 4 clamps, I just wanted to have a few extra just in case.

    Here's a link for fuel line in case anyone wants it...

    That's enough to do 5 jeeps, so throw a WOL party/bbq at your house and split the cost.

    Axle Breather Hose Extension Question

    Just wondering...Is there any downside to simply replacing the stock hose with a longer one and eliminating the need for couplers? My thought is that this reduces another possible point of failure (the hose couplers). Please point out anything obvious I may have neglected to take into consideration. thanks!

    Nope. You can just replace the whole thing without any issues.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
