    just find a hose that fits on it and hose clamp it on.make sure it is up high enuf on the frame that water cant get in if the stock one isnt there.

    Well duh! I don't feel like going into the local parts house and asking for all kinds of sizes to see which fits! Some intelligent answers please!

    3/8 is what i used on mine. if they are a bit snug, just lube the tube with some dishsoap.

    Re: Axle Breathers?

    3/8" seems to be the consensus around here /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif, so 3/8" it is then its off to Prarrie City to test my rig in the mud pit! WooHoo! /forums/images/graemlins/k5.gif /forums/images/graemlins/pimp1.gif

    Re: Axle Breathers?

    You ought to try using the clear tubing hose. Having it clear will show you if the oil is ever coming out after some steep climbing or off camber crawling. Its good for letting you know if the tubing is clean inside which indicates clean oil. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif

    Re: Axle Breathers?

    no need for insult here.if you didnt want any answers then dont post.inteligence,just measure the outside diameter of the fitting the hose will go on and go to the parts store and ask for that size hose.they usually sell them by the foot,so you will need to know what length you will need.you will also have to measure this depending on what size lift you have and where it attaches to the frame.

    Re: Axle Breathers?

    Well Duh again the one thing I don't have here at home is tape measure, calipers and such..........so therefore I have to rely on this site to help when I'm in need. If I had thes here instead of over at friends house then I wouldn't be on here asking such a stupid question! Now would I! DUH!

    Re: Axle Breathers?

    <font color="green"> Rather than dishsoap, I'd recommend lubing the nipple on the axle with RTV or silicone, so when you slide the tube on you ensure a good tight seal. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif </font color>

    Yeah, really...speaking of ----&gt; /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif&lt;-----......

    Why don't you chill a little, Tweety. Being a dink and lipping people off doesn't impress anyone here. It's also a REALLY good way to ensure that your next question gets ignored.

    One other thing- go buy a tape measure. They come in handy sometimes...... /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif
