Yes I see there is already a posting on "how to a rear diff " but since its called cheap tricks mine is cheaper! For the rear they give a toyota part number but you can actually use the stock breather just use a pair of pliers to remove the spring head thing " dont worry you can put it back together if you need to" go to auto parts store and get applicable hose and desired lenght use the hose clamp a lil bit or diff oil so it goes on smooth and shazaam its done, here the cool part since on the front with "IFS"the oil pan is so close to the top of the diff the original breather modification has to be used because of clearance issues. So altogether in my truck i bought 20' $3.75 of vaccum or fuel line just to be safe a pack of the small hose clamps $1.99 a Y connector $0.99 to join the two hoses and for kicks added a pure flow clear fule filter $10.99 ..... If you need them I can send you pics.

so basically you pull the little cap off of the stock breather and hose clamp the hose to it and be done with it?

Another slick trick is to get the quick disconnect 90* NPT fittings & use the clear refrigerator water line. I have ALL (axles, trans & t-case) breathers plumbed directly into the airbox ahead of the filter, which in turn is plumbed to my snorkle. Just getting them to the airbox will afford you a little extra edge of safety IMO. I used the bronze Q/D's on the housings, plastic Q/D's on the airbox. Total investment for all was less than $15

I used the wrong kind of hose for my rear one the first time and it clogged up god knows how, and the pressure built up and blew my passenger axle seal. Not a big deal but made me feel like a dumbas* :xsmash:

I'd like to see pics of your quick disconnects... I don't quite "see" it.

Okay, you had me confused by saying "quick disconnect". What you meant was "push TO connect" which is a tool-less connection. Now I understand... kinda.

How did you connect the brass pieces to the axles and t-case??? How about a pic of your axle with this little gem installed??

hehe hehe... struggling to remain work safe & family friendly...

Anyways, the brass ones just screwed in to the axles & cases. Didn't think it was significant enough to document, but I'll see what I can do. If you ever come to a dang meeting you could see 'em- heck we could even put em in for you!

Yeah, yeah, yeah... drive 150 miles for a 2-3 hour meeting... Then drive 150 miles back in the middle of the week.... I don't think so :D

So, Toyota axle breathers are threaded 1/8 npt??? Or is it just close enough?

okay, so i can just run hose that fits from the breather after the cap is taken off to a higher place on the truck. what was the reason for not being able to do the front one? i have manual hubs if that matters with a v6

the front diffs already have a factory extension; its up on the driver side fender under the hood.
