    What do you guys use to vent your stuff?
    I ripped out the whole charcoal cannister and have some bare rubber hoses that need a cent end on them.
    I don't have any more of those factory things. Gotta be something else anyway.
    I thought about just uing a vacuum-line T and connecting them to my axle vents. But since I'd be messing with it anyway, might as well get something better and raise them highr too.

    I raised all my lines using fuel hose. It comes in 3/8" and 1/2" and that's all I needed. I used hose clamps to attach them to the fuel cell, the axles, and tranny. Then at the extreme end, you'll need some sort of vent top. Toyota makes some awesome ones on their stock axles. If not, I used a fuel filter on the fuel cell side. But my axle breathers are still open. I'll either use the toyota units or there's some interesting stuff on the grainger site. Just type in "vent" and see what you get!!

    Left mine stock /forums/images/icons/smile.gif But then again not much mud or watter here. BTW nothing leaked out when I rolled except for brake fluid, but that was from the broken brake line.
